Arsenal will be facing Sporting Portugal later today in what is a great opportunity for The Gunners to solidify their position at the top of their Europa League group and extend their winning streak to eleven straight games. The club took to Twitter with a link to the Arsenal website with their latest team news, and the fans are delighted.

The news is good ahead of Sporting later. Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac are going to be assessed ahead of the clash whilst the likes of Petr Cech, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Sokratis Papastathopoulos have all returned to first-team football after overcoming their injuries. That leaves only Laurent Koscielny and Dinos Mavropanos who are still to be fully integrated back into first-team training.
Arsenal have a big game against Liverpool coming up that they’ll need to be sharp and ready for so tonight’s cash could be one that sees Emery choose to rest a few of his big names. However, the ex-Sevilla and PSG man will know the importance of momentum and getting a win will be the priority whoever they’re up against in future games. After a big win against Leicester on Monday, The Gunners are the bookies’ favourites and the fans will be keen to see some goals away in Portugal.
