Arsenal XI vs Slavia Prague: Starting lineup and confirmed team news

The captain has surprisingly been named as a substitute at Emirates Stadium, with Alexandre Lacazette leading the line instead.

Bukayo Saka, Granit Xhaka and Emile Smith Rowe all return after missing Saturday’s listless 3-0 defeat by Liverpool due to injury and illness, but Real Madrid loanee Martin Odegaard misses out altogether.

The Gunners do not have another senior left-back in the squad, with Tierney in a race against time to return this season.

Cedric Soares gets the nod at left-back against Slavia Prague, with Arteta seemingly resisting the urge to revert to a three-man defence.

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
