Arsenal will be looking to turn around a 3-1 deficit when we take on Rennes in our Europa League last-16 second leg at the Emirates Stadium this evening.
Unai Emery has made just two changes from the side that beat Manchester United 2-0 in the Premier League last weekend. As expected, Petr Cech starts in goal with Bernd Leno dropping out while Shkodran Mustafi comes in for the suspended Sokratis and lines-up alongside Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal in the back three.
Sead Kolasinac and Ainsley Maitland-Niles occupy the wing-back roles with Aaron Ramsey keeping his place alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield so Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi must make-do with places on the bench.
Mesut Ozil also keeps his place as he supports Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in attack with the Frenchman eligible to play after UEFA reduced his suspension to two matches.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is fit to return on the bench where he joins the likes of Denis Suarez, Eddie Nketiah, Iwobi and Torreira.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Cech; Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Ramsey; Ozil; Aubameyang, Lacazette
Subs: Leno, Mkhitaryan, Iwobi, Torreira, Guendouzi, Suarez, Nketiah
Koubek, H. Traoré, Da Silva, Mexer, Bensebaïni, André, Grenier, Sarr, Ben Arfa, Bourigeaud, Niang.
Subs: Badiashile, Zeffane, Doumbia, Léa Siliki, Del Castillo, Hunou, Gelin
