Arsenal will be looking to put one foot in the semi-finals of the Europa League when we take on CSKA Moscow at the Emirates this evening.

Arsene Wenger has handed Petr Cech a recall after he recovered from a minor groin injury that kept him out of the Stoke game with David Ospina ruled out with an apparent ankle problem.

Laurent Koscielny gets a recall in defence after being rested at the weekend so Calum Chambers drops to the bench with Shkodran Mustafi keeping his place.

Granit Xhaka comes in for Mohamed Elneny in midfield with Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey keeping their places while Henrikh Mkhitaryan gets a recall in attack.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ineligible so Alexandre Lacazette starts up front with Danny Welbeck having to make-do with a place on the bench.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Arsenal

Cech; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Xhaka, Ramsey, Wilshere; Ozil, Mkhitaryan; Lacazette
