Arsenal take on Qarabag in their Europa League Match Day 6 clash at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday.

The Gunners have already booked a place in the Round of 32 as group leaders.

Head coach Unai Emery has quashed rumours that he has had a rift with Mesut Ozil by starting him in his first game back after injury.

Ozil has missed his last five games in all competitions, the last three were due to a back problem.

The Gunners also have defender Laurent Koscielny back after a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to injury.

The Frenchman last played for the Gunners 225 days ago.

Emery has rotated his side heavily given several youngsters including Jenkinson, Willock and Saka the nod in the starting lineup.
