Three points against Vorskla Poltava on Thursday night will see Arsenal finish top of their Europa League group E with a game to spare.

The Gunners have already qualified for the round of 32 and can take the foot off the gas for the final game if they go win in Kiev.

The match was scheduled to take place in Poltava, but UEFA’s emergency panel announced on Tuesday the fixture would be moved to the Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev following the introduction of martial law in some parts of Ukraine.

Unai Emery has Stephan Lichsteiner to choose from. The Swiss has been sidelined with a hamstring injury but has been back in full training and was named in the travelling party to Ukraine.

Meanwhile, with Danny Welbeck out for the long haul and Alex Lacazette also sidelined, Emery will likely have to rely on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to lead the line.

Nacho Monreal and Dinos Mavropanos (both groin) should return to the training field next month.
