TEAM NEWS! Koscielny Set To Make First Start For Arsenal In Europa League Clash Against Qarabag


Defender Laurent Koscielny will make his first start for Arsenal since May in Thursday’s Europa League dead rubber against Qarabag.
The 33-year-old, who featured in an under-21 match last week, has fully recovered from a ruptured Achilles.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery said he had yet to decide whether Mesut Ozil would be fit to play following his back injury.
Aaron Ramsey is set to return, but Konstantinos Mavropanos, Danny Welbeck and Shkodran Mustafi are out.
Gunners defender Rob Holding is sidelined for nine months, having ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee last weekend.
When asked whether Koscielny might also feature for Arsenal against Southampton on Sunday, Emery said: “We are going to look also if he can play 90 minutes or less minutes in this game.
“We can use another player in this position, someone like Nacho Monreal, who is also with us and in his career he played in this position [before].
“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.”
