Arsenal take on Valencia at the Mestalla this evening in the second leg of our Europa League semi-final.

Unai Emery has named arguably our best available side [with the exception of Petr Cech] as Laurent Koscielny lines-up alongside Sokratis and Nacho Monreal in a back three with Shkodran Mustafi benched.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Sead Kolasinac occupy the wing-back positions with Lucas Torreira alongside Granit Xhaka in the middle of the park. Mesut Ozil starts in attack as he supports Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi are named on the bench along with Eddie Nketiah and Matteo Guendouzi.

These are the teams:


Neto, Piccini, Paulista, Garay, Gayà, Wass, Parejo, Coquelin, Guedes, Gameiro, Rodrigo.

Subs: Domenech, Roncaglia, Soler, Diakhaby, Lato, Torres, Santi Mina


Cech, Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal; Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Torreira, Kolasinac; Ozil; Lacazette, Aubameyang.

Subs: Leno, Elneny, Mkhitaryan, Iwobi, Mustafi, Guendouzi, Nketiah.
