For the Gunners, Spanish right-back Hector Bellerin and English defender Rob Holding will miss the game with respective knee injuries while Aaron Ramsey has a hamstring problem and will sit out the crucial game.

Armenian international Henrikh Mkhitaryan is not injured but he’ll miss the game for political reasons due to the conflict between his country and Azerbaijan.
