It is absolutely crucial that Arsenal get a great result tonight to take back to the Emirates but we cannot assume that it will be a pushover. Ostersund may not have a great history, in fact the club has been around for even less time than Arsene Wenger has been at Arsenal, but they have achieved great things from very humble beginnings, and they have not lost one game at home yet in this competition. It is expected to be minus 10 tonight so Arsenal will have a very frosty reception!
So this is the team that Wenger has chosen, in the absence of Ramsey, Wilshere, Koscielny, Lacazette and Aubameyang.

So Wenger has gone with an attacking formation of 4-2-4 and we have AMN and Elneny, with Iwobi, Ozil, Mkhi and Welbeck going for goals.
We have Xhaka and Kolasinac on the bench to hopefully aid our attacking line-up if they are struggling, but more important for me is the prescence of Nketiah on the bench if Welbeck is not quite as ready as Wenger thinks he is!
