Unai Emery has rung in the changes as Arsenal get set to take on Vitoria de Guimaraes in their third UEFA Europa League Group F fixture at the Emirates.
The shuffles begin right at the back, with Emiliano Martinez replacing Bernd Leno in goal. The defensive line in front of him bears a completely new look as well, with Emery rotating his troops heavily.

Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney are the full-back pairing for Arsenal, with Bellerin donning the armband in the absence of Granit Xhaka. Rob Holding combines with Shkodran Mustafi to form the central defensive partnership.
The aforementioned Xhaka is replaced by Lucas Torreira, who will be Arsenal’s holding midfielder against Vitoria SC. Torreira is accompanied by Joe Willock in the midfield double pivot. Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Gabriel Martinelli are the two wide men for the hosts, with Alexandre Lacazette leading the line and Emile Smith Rowe reprising the no. 10 role.
Arsenal Starting XI: Martinez; Bellerin, Holding, Mustafi, Tierney; Torreira, Willock; Maitlaind-Niles, Smith Rowe, Martinelli; Lacazette
