Arsenal will continue their quest for Europa League glory against Atletico Madrid, with the first leg of their semi-final encounter set to take place at Emirates Stadium on Thursday.
The Gunners are looking to continental competition to provide them with major silverware, a route into the Champions League and a fitting send-off for Arsene Wenger.
The long-serving manager has announced that he is to step down at the end of the season, after 22 years at the helm, and he will be determined to go with one more trophy under his belt.
Atletico, though, have every intention of spoiling the party and making their own way to the final in Lyon, with Diego Simeone’s side seeking to recapture a crown they last secured in 2012.
Mohamed Elneny has been ruled out for Arsenal after picking up an ankle injury against West Ham, but Jack Wilshere could come back into contention for a midfield berth.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ineligible to play in the competition, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan is still recovering from knee ligament damage and Mesut Ozil is nursing his way back from a bout of flu.
Potential Arsenal starting XI: Cech; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Xhaka, Wilshere, Ramsey; Ozil, Welbeck, Lacazette.
Diego Costa has been denied a reunion with the Gunners, with the former Chelsea striker ruled out for Atletico with a hamstring problem.
Experienced defender Juanfran is also a doubt for both legs of a crunch clash as he struggles to shake off a thigh complaint.
Potential Atletico Madrid starting XI: Oblak; Vrsaljko, Godin, Savic, Hernandez; Koke, Gabi, Saul, Correa, Vitolo; Griezmann.
