Arsenal will be looking to finish the job and book their place in the quarter finals of the Europa League when we welcome AC Milan to the Emirates tomorrow night.

Here is the side I think Arsene Wenger will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: David Ospina is set for a recall as he’s been our cup keeper this season so Petr Cech is expected to drop to the bench tomorrow.

Defence: We have received a major triple injury boost in defence as Shkodran Mustafi, Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal have all passed late fitness tests.

Bellerin returns from two games on the sidelines and should replace Ainsley Maitland-Niles at right-back while Monreal will come in for Sead Kolasinac after overcoming a back complaint.

Mustafi was a doubt after limping off with a groin injury against Watford at the weekend but he was able to train today so should partner Laurent Koscielny at the back tomorrow with Rob Holding making way.

Midfield: We should see a couple of changes in midfield too as Aaron Ramsey is set for a recall after being rested at the weekend while Jack Wilshere should also return to the starting eleven.

Mohamed Elneny will feel unlucky yo make way as he was excellent against Watford but Granit Xhaka will probably keep his place in the side despite some inconsistent form of late.

Attack: Alexandre Lacazette returned to light training today after recovering from a knee injury but the French international won’t be available until after the international break.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ineligible so Danny Welbeck is set to come in up front and he’ll be looking to end his goal drought by finding the back of the net against Milan.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has scored in consecutive games having opened his account for Arsenal in the first leg so he’ll be looking to build some momentum following a mixed start to life at the club.

Mesut Ozil will also keep his place in attack but Alex Iwobi is expected to drop to the bench.

Here is how I think we’ll see Arsenal line-up:
