4-2-3-1: Nketiah starts in strongest probable Arsenal line-up against Ostersund

The Gunners play host to Swedish side Ostersunds in the Europa League last-32 encounter but they have a commanding advantage over their visitors.

Arsene Wenger fielded a near-first team squad away from home but the French tactician will tweak his team tonight as they have an eye in the Carabao Cup final game against Manchester City in Wembley on Sunday.

Arsenal were shockingly knocked out of the English FA Cup and given the form of Manchester City, their best bet at a trophy this season is the Europa Cup. Arsenal are already off the pace in the Premier League chase and they unlikely going to end the season in top four places but their dream of qualifying for he Champions League may be realised through the Europa Cup.

Arsenal team news

Alexandre Lacazette is currently recoverying after undergoing surgery to correct a knee injury. He has already hit the gym and Arsene Wenger revealed that he is ahead of the stipulated 4-6weeks schedule for return.

Aaron Ramsey has returned to full training but he is short of fitness but will likely be featured against Manchester City.

Aubameyang is cup tied and will continue to enjoy his break from the game.

We think Arsene Wenger will feature majority of his second team players and they will line-up this way.

Potential Arsenal starting XI: Ospina; Chambers, Mertesacker, Holding, Kolasinac; Iwobi, Maitand Niles, Elneny, Nelson; Nketiah; Welbeck.
