It’s international week and two of Arsenal’s stars are in action tonight while two others are on the bench….

Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud both start for France during their World Cup qualifier against Sweden in Paris tonight.

Let’s hope both come through the game unscathed as it would be a huge blow if either were to pick up a knock this evening.

These are the teams for the France game:


Lloris; Sidibé, Varane, Koscielny, Evra; Sissoko, Pogba, Matuidi, Payet; Griezmann, Giroud

Subs: Mandanda, Costil, Corchia, Rami, Gameiro, Dembele, Fekir, Kante, Rabiot, Digne, Lemar, Mangala.
