Arsenal will be looking to finish the job and book their place in the semi-finals of the Europa League when we take on CSKA Moscow this evening.

Arsene Wenger has named his strongest possible side with Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal recalled to the defence after being rested at the weekend. Calum Chambers and Sead Kolasinac drop to the bench.

Granit Xhaka misses out through illness so Mohamed Elneny starts in midfield with Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere recalled after being rested against Southampton.

Danny Welbeck is preferred to Alex Iwobi in attack while Mesut Ozil supports Alexandre Lacazette. The bench is packed with defenders as Reiss Nelson has been left out of the squad.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

CSKA Moscow

Akinfeev; A. Berezutski, Ignashevich, V. Berezutski; Nabaki, Bistrovich, Kuchaev; Dzagoev, Golovin; Musa, Chalov

Subs: Pomazun, Milanov, Vitinho, Schennikov, Natcho, Zhamaletdinov, Khosonov

Arsenal
