Teams: Cologne v Arsenal: Debuchy starts, Nelson left out

Mathieu Debuchy

Arsenal can secure top spot in Europa League Group H when we take on Cologne in Germany this evening.

Arsene Wenger rotates his starting eleven once more as David Ospina comes in between the sticks while Per Mertesacker, Calum Chambers and Rob Holding make-up the back three.

Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud start in attack while Mathieu Debuchy is picked ahead of Reiss Nelson at right wing-back – which is a real shame as I was looking forward to seeing the youngster.

These are the line-ups for the game:


Horn, Mere, Maroh, Sorensen, J Horn, Jojic, Ozcan, Klunter, Guirassy, Osako, Cordoba.

Subs: Olkowski, Kessler, Lehmann, Rausch, Nartey, Risa, Bisseck


Ospina; Chambers, Mertesacker, Holding; Debuchy, Coquelin, Elneny, Maitland-Niles; Wilshere, Welbeck, Giroud

Subs: Macey, Sheaf, Nelson, Willock, Iwobi, Akpom, Nketiah
