Alexandre Lacazette starts upfront for Arsenal while Bukayo Saka returns as they get set to take on Olympiacos at the Emirates in the UEFA Europa League.
Mikel Arteta has made two changes to the side that started in the 3-2 win over Everton in the Premier League this past weekend as Arsenal prepare to lock horns with Olympiacos at the Emirates in the UEFA Europa League Round of 32 second leg.
Bernd Leno keeps his place in a Europa League game once again, with Emiliano Martinez being his deputy. Defence is where one of the changes takes place, with Bukayo Saka coming in for the injured Sead Kolasinac. Saka is joined by Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi and David Luiz in the Arsenal backline.

The only other change comes in attack, with Alexandre Lacazette replacing Eddie Nketiah upfront. Lacazette leads the line against Olympiacos, with Ozil playing off him.
