Arsenal take on Molde in Norway this evening knowing a win will book our place in the knockout stages of the Europa League.

Mikel Arteta has made wholesale changes from the side that drew at Leeds United on Sunday. Alex Runarsson comes in for Bernd Leno in goal while Cedric Soares, David Luiz, Shkodran Mustafi and Ainsley Maitland-Niles replace Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, Gabriel and Kieran Tierney in defence.

Granit Xhaka keeps his place in midfield with Thomas Partey and Mo Elneny unavailable. Joe Willock joins him in the middle of the park with Dani Ceballos on the bench along with Emile Smith Rowe while Reiss Nelson gets a start in the Arsenal attack.

Nicolas Pepe keeps his place as he’ll be suspended for the Premier League game with Wolves on Sunday. Alexandre Lacazette is recalled to start up front with Eddie Nketiah also back in the line-up. Obviously Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is rested.

These are the teams for the game:


Runarsson; Cedric, Luiz, Mustafi, Maitland-Niles; Xhaka, Willock, Nelson, Pepe, Nketiah, Lacazette

Subs: Macey, Hein, Bellerin, Tierney, Ceballos, Holding, Smith Rowe, Balogun, Cottrell, Azeez


Linde, Gregersen, Sinyan, Risa, Wingo, Ellingsen, Hestad, Aursnes, Hussain, Eikrem, James

Subs: Mostrom, Craninx, Knudtzon, Christensen, Brynhildsen, Ranmark, Pedersen, Bolly, Omoijuanfo
