GK: Matt Turner - These Europa League games are the American stopper's chance to impress.

RB: Takehiro Tomiyasu - The win over Zurich is the only game Tomiyasu has started so far this season after building his fitness as a sub in the Premier League.

CB: Ben White - Could be afforded an opportunity to start in the middle after being involved at right-back this season.

CB: Rob Holding - Another who will be keen to impose himself after making do with a back-up role so far.

LB: Kieran Tierney - Afforded almost 20 minutes in the north London derby and will expected to replace Oleksandr Zinchenko as a starter here.

CM: Martin Odegaard - Missed out against Zurich but could start if it means resting Granit Xhaka instead but retaining some midfield leadership.

CM: Albert Sambi Lokonga - Has only been a sub in the last two Premier League games but in for all 90 minutes last time in Europe.

CM: Fabio Vieira - Arsenal haven't see that much of him so far, although a recent goal on his only Premier League start shows promise.

RW: Marquinhos - His only meaningful first-team minutes this season came against Zurich on matchday one when he scored and assisted.

ST: Eddie Nketiah - One goal and one assist in the Europa League so far, with no Premier League starts yet under his belt.

LW: Gabriel Martinelli - Keen to play every moment of football available to him and has started all nine Arsenal games across all competitions.
