Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed that fullbacks Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin will feature in the Europa League clash with Standard Liege on Thursday night.

The Gunners host Standard Liege FC of Belgium at the Emirates Stadium in their second group game in the Europa League this season and the aforementioned players are expected to return to the Arsenal starting XI after recovering fully from respective injuries.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery confirmed their availability for the game during his pre-match press conference on Wednesday.

The Spanish tactician also said that English center-back Rob Holding will also feature in the game.

Kieran Tierney, Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding all played their first game for the Arsenal first team this season against English Championship side Nottingham Forest in the third round of the Carabao Cup last week.

Rob Holding scored one of the goals as Arsenal thrashed their opponents 5-0 to book their spot in the Carabao Cup fourth round.

Hector Bellerin was the only one that came on as a substitute and he still had enough time to provide the assist for the third goal scored by Joe Willock.

The Spanish right-back was subbed on for Scottish left-back Kieran Tierney for the final 15 minutes of the game.
