Folarin Balogun to score first. The exciting youngster is expected to lead the line for Arsenal at Ibrox.
The 20-year-old will be eager to grab his opportunity on Saturday by impressing Mikel Arteta.
Rangers lost to League Two opposition last Saturday so this could be a great opportunity for Balogun to find the back of the net.

Arsenal humiliated by Hibs
Arsenal supporters were left fuming on Tuesday as their side were beaten 2-1 by Hibernian.
The game at Easter Road couldn’t have gone much worse for the Gunners.
Early on, Eddie Nketiah missed an opportunity where he was clean through one on one with the keeper only to put it wide.
Then young goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo gifted Hibs the lead as he failed to deal with Cedric’s back pass and Martin Boyle was able to easily tap home.
Pepe then missed a penalty just moments after Arteta’s side had fallen two goals behind to the Scottish side.
Arsenal will now need to produce a much better performance on Saturday with the pressure already mounting from the fans.
