Arsenal need to secure a first leg lead when we welcome Atletico Madrid to the Emirates in the semi-finals of the Europa League tonight.

Wenger has surprisingly gone with Ospina in goal despite Cech returning to fitness but the rest of the team lines-up as expected.

The usual back four of Bellerin, Koscielny, Mustafi and Monreal start at the back while Wilshere is recalled in midfield alongside Xhaka and Ramsey.

Welbeck is given the nod over Iwobi as he joins Ozil in supporting Lacazette in attack.

These are the line-ups:


Ospina; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Xhaka, Ramsey, Wilshere; Ozil, Welbeck, Lacazette

Subs: Cech, Holding, Maitland-Niles, Kolasinac, Chambers, Iwobi, Nketiah

Atletico Madrid

Oblak, Lucas, Godin, Gimenez, Vrsaljko, Thomas, Saul, Koke, Correa, Griezmann, Gameiro

Subs: Werner, Savic, Gabi, Vitolo, Olabe, Torres, Costa.
