Match: Arsenal v BATE Borisov
Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Kick-Off (GMT): Thu 7 Dec 20:05
Let’s hope the Gunners can round off their qualification campaign with a win this evening. Here’s how we think they’ll line up:
GK) David Ospina
As Arsenal’s cup goalkeeper, David Ospina will surely start.

RCB) Mathieu Debuchy
The Frenchman will play and be looking to continue his good run of form in the cup competitions.
CB) Calum Chambers
He’ll start and hopefully get some minutes under his belt.
LCB) Rob Holding
RWB) Reiss Nelson
Calum Chambers held the right wing-back slot in Arsenal’s last Europa League match but we think Reiss Nelson will return.
CM) Mohamed Elneny
Mohamed Elneny hasn’t played in a while and should be given some time on the pitch.
CM) Francis Coquelin
Francis Coquelin needs game time.
LWB) Ainsley Maitland-Niles
RAM) Theo Walcott
Theo Walcott hasn’t played in some time and needs minutes on the pitch.
LAM) Jack Wilshere
You get the feeling that Jack Wilshere will feature more in the Premier League in the coming weeks and will need a good performance this evening to make sure of it.
ST) Olivier Giroud
He’ll start up front.
