How Arsenal could line up vs Olympiacos in Europa League

The attacking midfielder has been out of action since February 28 with a hip issue, but he was due to take part in full training on Wednesday before Arsenal fly to Athens.

After drawing to Burnley on Saturday, Mikel Arteta is expected to make some changes for this Europa League last-16 tie – with Gabriel Magalhaes coming in at centre-back for Pablo Mari.

Arteta also has a decision to make as to who starts at right-back, with both Cedric Soares and Hector Bellerin rested last weekend.

Nicolas Pepe is another pushing to start on the left ahead of Willian, while a fully fit Emile Smith Rowe would be an option there too.

Arsenal predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Bellerin, Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Pepe; Aubameyang.

Thursday 8.00pm GMT, BT Sport
