Arsenal wrap-up their pre-season preparations when we take on Lazio at the Friends Arena in Stockholm tonight.

Unai Emery has made some changes from the side that beat Chelsea on penalties with Lucas Torreira making his debut alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield. Aaron Ramsey misses out with a calf problem.

Stephan Lichtsteiner also comes in to make his first appearance in an Arsenal shirt as he replaces Hector Bellerin at right-back. Calum Chambers and Rob Holding replace Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis in the middle of defence.

Sead Kolasinac has been ruled out for two months with a knee injury and Nacho Monreal isn’t named in the squad so Ainsley Maitland-Niles starts at left-back tonight.

Alexandre Lacazette starts up front with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang named on the bench while Reiss Nelson, Alex Iwobi and Eddie Nketiah offer support in attack.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Arsenal
