It’s make or break for Arsenal as they travel to face Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-final second leg.
The Gunners were in a commanding position to take a slender 1-0 lead against 10 men Atletico, however, a series of errors saw Antoine Griezmann score a vital away goal for the visitors late on.
They will be the favourites to progress to the final in Lyon as they have only conceded four goals at home in La Liga all season.
Arsene Wenger’s side will have to score at least once if they are to have any chance of qualifying and Alexandre Lacazette will hope to be on the scoresheet again.
Arsenal fielded a mixture of squad and youth players against Manchester Utd on Sunday – however – the likes of Lacazette, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere are certain to start on Thursday.
