Arsenal are at the Emirates Stadium for tonight’s Europa League round of 16 second-leg versus AC Milan. The Gunners secured a 2-0 advantage during their away leg at San Siro, and they are now strong position to progress to the quarter-final stage of the competition, barring a huge setback.
David Ospina has been the Gunners’ first-choice keeper for the Cup and European competitions, and he is likely to return between the sticks for the Rossoneri game.
In defence, we could see the returns of Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal at right-back and left-back respectively after knee and back injuries. Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi will perform the central defensive duties.
Granit Xhaka produced a top-notch performance during the first-leg in San Siro, and he is very much certain to play alongside Aaron Ramsey, who scored the second goal in Milan.
Further forward, Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are strong candidates to feature in the wider positions with Jack Wilshere possible slotting into the number 10 position.
Alexandre Lacazette is unavailable for the game as he continues his recovery following a knee surgery, and this should see Danny Welbeck lead the line following his England call-up alongside Wilshere earlier in the day.
