The Europa League takes centre stage tonight as Mikel Arteta’s side host Czech opposition in the first leg of their quarter-final tie.
Winning this competition is likely to offer Arsenal’s only plausible route back into the Champions League next season, unless they can somehow overhaul a 10-point gap to the Premier League’s top four with only eight matches left to play this term.
Arteta apologised to Gunners fans after Saturday’s listless 3-0 defeat by Liverpool – arguably the worst performance of his mixed tenure to date – and will be demanding a swift response at Emirates Stadium this evening.
Arsenal XI: Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Cedric, Xhaka, Partey, Willian, Smith Rowe, Saka, Lacazette
Subs: Ryan, Hein, Ceballos, Aubameyang, Pepe, Mari, Nelson, Elneny, Nketiah, Martinelli, Azeez, Lopez
