Arsenal v Red Star: Likely line up

Arsenal take on Red Star Belgrade at the Emirates in their fourth game of the Europa League campaign and could secure qualification to the knockout rounds.

Arsenal have won three out of three so far and a win would guarantee progression to the next stage and should all but wrap up the Gunners place at the top of the group.

Winning the group would mean avoiding those teams that will enter the competition from the Champions League. Currently that includes the likes of Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

It looks set to be a very similar line up to that which has started the group games and Carabao Cup games this season.

We should get another chance to see the likes of Reiss Nelson, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Joe Willock.

It will also be another step towards Premier League football for Jack Wilshere.

Mathieu Debuchy should get more game time as he looks to revive his Arsenal career.

    As I remember it, the eight third place teams entering the Europa League from the Champions League are
    divided between the two groups for the EL round of 32 based on their club coefficient. The top four join the EL
    group winners and the bottom four are placed with the group runners-up. If this is still the procedure, Arsenal, as a group winner, might draw a team relegated from the UCL.
