Arsenal get their Europa League campaign underway with a tough trip to Germany to face Eintracht Frankfurt this evening [5.55pm kick off].

Shkodran Mustafi has been handed a recall by Unai Emery with the German starting at right-back in place of Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Calum Chambers comes in for Sokratis but Rob Holding hasn’t been included in the squad as David Luiz keeps his place in the back four.

Emi Martinez comes in between the sticks while Lucas Torreira partners Granit Xhaka in midfield with Joe Willock also getting a recall meaning Dani Ceballos and Matteo Guendouzi are among the substitutes.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang starts up front so we better pray he doesn’t pick up a knock! Bukayo Saka gets a chance to impress in attack while Emile Smith Rowe also gets a recall.

These are the confirmed teams:


Trapp; Abraham, Hinteregger, Hasebe; Kamada; Kostic, Sow, Kohr, Da Costa; André Silva, Dost.

Subs: Ndicka, Falette, Fernandes, Joveljic, Chandler, Ronnow, Paciencia


Martinez; Mustafi, Chambers, Luiz, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Torreira, Willock; Smith Rowe, Aubameyang, Saka

Subs: Leno, Ceballos, Maitland-Niles, Pepe, Nelson, Guendouzi, Martinelli
