The English Premier League outfit will resume actions against Dundalk at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday for the Europa League clash and the target for Mikel Arteta is to get back to winning ways after suffering a defeat against Leicester City in the Premier League clash at the weekend.
Arsenal enjoyed a sweet 2-1 victory in their first Europa League game against Molde with goals coming from Nicolas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang which makes it important to continue on that note.
A number of players are have been confirmed by manager Mikel Arteta to be away as a result of injuries but that will not stop the Spanish boss from resting some of the big boys for the Premier League challenge against Man United at the weekend.
The likes of Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka, Bernd Leno could be rested for the game or handed bench roles to get them fresh for the weekend challenge. Special thanks to the fact that they will not have to travel away from England.

However, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could get his own share of playing time in the game to be able to help his search for goal-scoring form but that could also happen with a bench role as he has been criticized for not scoring goals.
Runar Alex Runarsson’s wait for a debut could be over as an opportunity is to be handed to him on Thursday night while Shkodran Mustafi will be in line for action after the Injury of David Luiz and the absence of William Saliba from the Europa League team.
The likes of Mohamed Elneny, Maitland-Niles, Sead Kolasinac, Eddie Nketiah, and Joe Willock are available for selection for the Thursday encounter.
