English Premier League side Arsenal have been unbeaten in their last 21 games across all competitions which they will hope it is stretched again to 22 after their home clash against Qarabag FX later on Thursday evening at the Emirates Stadium.
A qualification to the next round is already confirmed for the North London side and that will be happening as the group leaders after an unbeaten run in the competition as well.
Gunners boss Unai Emery has got a number of options to play within the team but that cannot be said of the defence department with Rob Holding already out of the season.
However, the Spanish boss has hinted that the club’s captain Laurent Koscielny will return to action in the Europa League clash as he has since been training with the team.
There is no doubt about Petr Cech in the middle of the pole while Carl Jenkinson, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Koscielny and Maitland-Niles could line up at the defence.
The midfield is also expected to see non-starters like Mohamed Elneny, Matteo Guendouzi and Willock to link up with Smith Row, Alex Iwobi and Nketia at the attack.
With a dicey clash in the Premier League at the weekend, most of the first team players would be made to rest to be able to execute the game.
