Confirmed line-ups: Arsenal vs Molde – Luiz, Willian & Xhaka all start

By on November 5, 2020

Arsenal take on Molde at the Emirates this evening in our third Europa League group stage game.

Mikel Arteta has rotated his squad with Ainsley Maitland-Niles coming in for Hector Bellerin while Sead Kolasinac replaces Kieran Tierney. Shkodran Mustafi and David Luiz line-up together in defence with Gabriel and Rob Holding making way.

Bernd Leno is surprisingly selected to start in goal meaning Alex Runarsson must settle for a place on the bench but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is obviously rested ahead of Sunday’s Premier League game against Aston Villa.

Thomas Partey is given a breather following his excellent performance against Man Utd while Mo Elneny also gets a breather with Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos returning in the Arsenal midfield midfield.

Willian starts in attack as Reiss Nelson is ruled out with a minor knock while Nicolas Pepe, Joe Willock and Eddie Nketiah all get recalls. Bukayo Saka and Alexandre Lacazette make way.

These are the teams for the match:


Leno; Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, David Luiz, Kolasinac; Ceballos, Xhaka, Willock; Pepe, Nketiah, Willian

Subs: Runarsson, Bellerín, Tierney, Gabriel, Holding, Cedric, Partey, Elneny, Saka, Lacazette, Aubameyang, Macey.


Linde, Wingo, Bjornbak, Gregersen, Haugen, Aursnes, Wolff Eikrem, Hussain, Ellingsen, Omoijuanfo, Bolly

Subs: Risa, Sinyan, Mostrom, James, Craninx, Knudtzon, Christensen, Brynhildsen, Ranmark, Pedersen
