Arsenal welcome Östersunds FK to the Emirates for the second leg of their Europa League Round of 32 tie. The Gunners have a 3-0 lead after the first leg in Sweden, and it should be fairly easy for them to secure their spot in the next round at home. Östersunds pulled themselves together after a slow start in the first game, though, and Arsene Wenger will have warned his team against going for “a stroll” as they have earlier in the season.
Mesut Özil and Aaron Ramsey are out with an illness and a groin injury, respectively, although both should be back soon after this match. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is cup-tied and won’t play for Arsenal in the Europa League, and with Alexandre Lacazette also out injured, we’re almost guaranteed to see Danny Welbeck up front.
