Breaking News ! Arsenal have dropped captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for their Europa League quarter-final first leg against Slavia Prague. The Gabon striker has failed to score since missing out on the North London Derby victory over Tottenham last month and was subbed off in both of the last two Gunners games. He is replaced in the starting line-up by Willian who is on the left-wing, while Bukayo Saka comes back into the side on the right. Emile Smith Rowe is also fit again as Martin Odegaard misses out completely due to an ankle injury.

At left-back Mikel Arteta has chosen Cedric to replace Kieran Tierney in the starting line-up. The Scot was ruled out injured for four to six weeks on Wednesday after it was confirmed that he suffered knee ligament damage in the defeat to Liverpool. That means that Hector Bellerin comes in and captain's the side, with Calum Chambers not even being included in the 20 man squad. Sign up for football.london's club newsletters In each football.
