Arsenal can put one foot in the knockout stages of the Europa League with victory over Red Star Belgrade in Serbia this evening.

As expected, Arsene Wenger has rung the changes with Reiss Nelson, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Joe Willock all handed starts while Mathieu Debuchy starts his first game in almost a year.

Olivier Giroud starts up front with support from Theo Walcott while Jack Wilshere also gets another chance to impress. Petr Cech keeps his place in goal as David Ospina hasn’t travelled to Serbia.

Here are the line-ups:

Red Star
