Arsenal have named their Europa League squad for their first crack at the trophy since it was rebranded from the UEFA Cup.
The opening game is next week, a home clash with Cologne on Thursday, and the team the manager picks for that game – especially with a trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday – will be quite interesting.
Arsenal’s Europa League squad for 2017/18 is as follows.
David Ospina, Petr Cech, Deyan Iliev, Matt Macey, Ryan Huddart, Hugo Keto.
Mathieu Debuchy, Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny, Rob Holding, Nacho Monreal, Shkodran Mustafi, Calum Chambers, Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac, Toljai Bola, Chiori Johnson, Tafari Moore.
Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil, Granit Xhaka, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Francis Coquelin, Mohamed Elneny, Krystian Bielik, Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Charlie Gilmour, Marcus McGuane, Reiss Nelson, Ben Sheaf, Joe Willock.
Alexis Sanchez, Alexandre Lacazette, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck, Chuba Akpom, Josh Dasilva, Alex Iwobi, Aaron Eyoma, Edward Nketiah.
