“I love this game” – These Arsenal fans thrilled with Unai Emery selection for crucial Europa League tie

Arsenal fans are mostly reacting very positively to the team news tonight as Gunners boss Unai Emery has named a pretty similar side to the one that beat Manchester United at the weekend.

Crucially, that means an attack-minded XI with Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all in together.

The only changes come in goal, with Emery continuing his policy of using Petr Cech over Bend Leno in the Europa League.

Meanwhile, there is also a change in defence as Shkodran Mustafi replaces the suspended Sokratis Papastathopoulos, who got sent off in the first leg defeat against Rennes.

Arsenal are 3-1 down on aggregate and will need to approach this game with all guns blazing if they are to have any hope of getting the 2-0 scoreline that is the bare minimum required to go through to the next round.

No wonder fans are glad to see Emery name attack-minded midfielders like Ramsey and Ozil together, along with two deadly strikers in Aubameyang and Lacazette…
