What is the Arsenal team news?
Arteta heavily rotated the team in the victory over the Norwegians last week and further changes appear likely this evening.
Eddie Nketiah, Rob Holding and Fabio Vieira all scored in the win and the trio could start again later on today.
Marquinhos, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Reiss Nelson could all feature from the off, with Arteta surely keen to protect his key players on Bodo/Glimt’s artificial pitch.
Emile Smith-Rowe and Mohamed Elneny remain sidelined, while Oleksandr Zinchenko will continue to be monitored ahead of a potential comeback in the not too distant future.
Gabriel Jesus picked up a knock in the win over Liverpool but will likely be rested anyway.
