Arsenal take a commanding 3-0 lead in to the second leg of our Europa League last-32 clash with Ostersunds tonight. Here is the team I would like to see Arsene Wenger select….

Wenger has confirmed that Ospina will retain his place in goal so Cech won’t be involved and we should see Macey on bench.


Defence: Chambers, Mertesacker, Holding, Kolasinac

The boss is set to rest his key men ahead of Sunday’s cup final so Koscielny, Bellerin, Monreal and Mustafi should all be given the night off this evening.

I hope Kolasinac is given a run-out as he looks a shadow of the player that arrived in the summer so he needs to get his form and confidence back.

This could be a good opportunity to hand Mertesacker a rare start in defence with Holding also starting alongside the German legend at the back.

We don’t have too many options behind Bellerin so Chambers is probably the only realistic choice at right-back.
