Arsene Wenger has completely changed the team ahead of this European clash. It’s a similar team to the one which got past Doncaster in the Carabao Cup last week with a mixture of youth and experience for the Gunners.
Jack Wilshere, Per Mertesacker, Shkodran Mustafi, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud all start for the Gunners with a very youthful bench. Chuba Akpom is the most experienced substitute with the likes of Eddie Nketiah and Vlad Dragomir waiting in the wings.
