Arsenal are back in Europa League action tonight as we take on Bodo Glimt at the Emirates Stadium.

Boss Mikel Arteta has made wholesale changes to his usual side with a number of key players given a rest ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Liverpool.

Aaron Ramsdale is given a break so Matt Turner comes in to make just his second start for Arsenal in goal. Ben White, William Saliba and Oleksandr Zinchenko are also rested.

Kieran Tierney comes in at left-back while Rob Holding is given a chance to impress in defence. Takehiro Tomiyasu is also recalled to start at right-back while Gabriel keeps his place in the Arsenal back four.

Albert Sambi Lokonga is recalled to partner Granit Xhaka in midfield with Thomas Partey given a rest. Martin Odegaard also drops to the bench with Fabio Vieira replacing the Norwegian in the attacking central midfield role for Arsenal.

Gabriel Jesus is given a well-earned breather as Eddie Nketiah is recalled to lead the line up front. Bukayo Saka is also rested so Marquinhos is given another chance to impress on the wing. The Brazilian was excellent against Zurich last time out in the Europa League so it will be interesting to see how he does tonight.

Gabriel Martinelli keeps his place on the left flank with Emile Smith Rowe injured. Reiss Nelson is in the Arsenal squad but he has to make do with a place on the bench this evening.

Here are the teams for the game:


Turner; Tomiyasu, Holding, Gabriel; Marquinhos, Lokonga, Xhaka, Tierney; Fabio Vieira; Nketiah, Martinelli.

Subs: Ramsdale, Hein, White, Partey, Saka, Odegaard, Jesus, Saliba, Cedric, Nelson, Cirjan, Matt Smith.
