Arsenal Confirmed lineup vs Qarabag: several changes; Koscielny, Ozil start

Koscielny set for first Arsenal start since May

The Frenchman, who has only just returned from rupturing his achilles tendon, is expected to make his return to first team action against Qarabag in the Europa League on Thursday, before presumably starting alongside Stephan Lichtsteiner and Nacho Monreal on Sunday.

"Today Saka also played with a good performance, with a very big personality and we were speaking at half-time".

"I think for Koscielny it's good that he's recovered and I also think he recovered in a good time for his big injury".

We are going to use tomorrow with some different players, with some coming from Under-23s.

Koscielny was taken off with 20 minutes left, but Emery said it's too soon to say whether he'll be ready to play again on Sunday against Southampton, when Arsenal are facing a centre-back crisis. Tomorrow our objective is to win, we will give players chance to take responsibility and confidence.

Trump's son-in-law Kushner possible next chief of staff: US media
Last year, Trump and First Lady Melanie Trump made a brief appearance at the party but did not take pictures with the guests. Like his father-in-law, he left NY real estate to become one of Washington's most powerful political players.

"We are going to look also if he can play 90 minutes or less minutes in this game [against Qarabag]", Emery said.

Here is how we expect Arsenal to line up...

It remains to be seen how quickly the 33-year-old Koscielny can get back to his best after almost seven months on the sidelines, while Konstantinos Mavropanos, 21, is still out with a troublesome groin injury and hasn't played all season.

Emery, whose side have now gone 21 games unbeaten across all competitions, was also pleased to see his captain play under him for the first time.

Emery looks set to hand Koscielny a first appearance since May in the Europa League against Qarabag.

He finally returned for Arsenal's reserves in a Checkatrade Trophy clash with Portsmouth last week and Emery confirmed on Wednesday that Koscielny will start against Qarabag.

Emery replaced Koscielny - the only starter to boast a 100% pass-completion rate - for the final quarter of the match as Arsenal continued to go through the motions.

'He played with a very big personality and sometimes with a very good performance.

"We are going to decide but the first is to think about the match tomorrow because we need to receive information on how he can feel".
