Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has some major selection decisions to make ahead of his side’s first-leg quarterfinal clash at home with CSKA Moscow.
First in goal, Wenger will have to decide whether to stick with David Ospina or the newly recovered Petr Cech.
Some reports in England claim Wenger could drop Ospina in favour of the much experienced Cech who has only played ones in the competition this season.
While Cech may start in goal, Danny Welbeck may lose his starting position to Alexandre Lacazette who got a goal for Arsenal at the weekend.
Cech has hardly featured in the competition this season, making just one appearance back in October, and missed Sunday’s 3 – 0 win over Stoke City due to injury.
It won’t be a surprise to see Welbeck replaced by Lacazette on Thursday night following the Frenchman’s impressive display against Stoke on Sunday.
Arsenal need to win their home leg in the Europa League so they can travel to Russia without needing a victory to progress to the semi-finals.
Their season rides on this competition as they’re too many points off a top-four place in the Premier League table.
