Arsenal will be looking to wrap-up top spot in Europa League Group F with a win over Eintracht Frankfurt at the Emirates this evening.

Unai Emery has handed Granit Xhaka a recall as the Swiss international makes his first appearance since being involved in a bust-up with his own supporters last month. Joe Willock joins Xhaka in midfield with Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira making way.

Arsenal will play with a back three once again as Shkodran Mustafi comes in to join Sokratis and David Luiz in defence. Sead Kolasinac is ruled out with a hamstring injury so Kieran Tierney will start in the left wing-back position.

Hector Bellerin also isn’t risked due to a hamstring complaint so Calum Chambers is preferred to Ainsley Maitland-Niles on the right while Emi Martinez comes in for Bernd Leno between the sticks.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a surprise starter up front with Alexandre Lacazette named on the bench. Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka support Auba in attack with Reiss Nelson and Nicolas Pepe on the bench.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Arsenal

Martinez, Mustafi, Sokratis, David Luiz; Chambers, Xhaka, Willock, Tierney; Martinelli, Saka; Aubameyang.

Subs: Leno, Lacazette, Ozil, Torreira, Pepe, Nelson, Guendouzi

Eintracht Frankfurt

Ronnow; Abraham, Hasebe, Hinteregger; Da Costa, Kamada, Fernandes, Sow, Kostic; Paciencia, Andre Silva

Subs: Zimmermann, N’Dicka, Joveljic, Gacinovic, Toure, Chandler, Kohr
