Arsenal will be looking to recover from our 3-1 first leg defeat when we take on Rennes in the Europa League last-16 this evening.

Unai Emery has made just two changes from the side that beat Manchester United with Petr Cech replacing Bernd Leno in goal while Shkodran Mustafi comes in to replace the suspended Sokratis in defence.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles continues in the right wing-back role while Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac also keep their places. Aaron Ramsey once again starts alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield meaning Lucas Torreira is on the bench.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette line-up in attack with Mesut Ozil offering support so Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi are on the bench.

These are the teams:


Cech; Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Ramsey; Ozil; Aubameyang, Lacazette

Subs: Leno, Mkhitaryan, Iwobi, Torreira, Guendouzi, Suarez, Nketiah


Koubek, H. Traoré, Da Silva, Mexer, Bensebaïni, André, Grenier, Sarr, Ben Arfa, Bourigeaud, Niang.

Subs: Badiashile, Zeffane, Doumbia, Léa Siliki, Del Castillo, Hunou, Gelin
