Arsenal vs Ostersunds FK: Europa League Round 32 TV, live streaming 2nd LEG

Henrikh Mkhitaryan will start the second leg of Arsenal's Europa League round-of-32 tie against Ostersund on Thursday.

The Gunners are looking to protect a 3-0 lead from the first leg in Sweden and progress into the last 16 of Europe's second-tier competition.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Mkhitaryan, who joined the club from Manchester United in January,

 will feature in the tie as the Armenia international is ineligible for Sunday's Carabao Cup final against Manchester City having played for Jose Mourinho's side earlier in the competition.

Mesut Ozil played the whole 90 minutes of the opening leg against Ostersund in sub-zero conditions.

Arsenal are on the verge of the last 16 of the Europa League as they welcome Ostersunds FK to north London for the second leg of their round-of-32 tie.

Arsene Wenger's Gunners strolled to a 3-0 first-leg victory in snowy Sweden last Thursday, with goals from Nacho Monreal and Mesut Ozil either side of a Sotirios Papagiannopoulos own goal all but sealing progress to the next round.

With Arsenal increasingly likely to miss out on qualifying for the Champions League via a Premier League top-four finish, 

winning the Europa League would send the Gunners back into Europe's elite club competition next season - and Wenger cannot afford a shock slip-up at the Emirates.

Team News

Aaron Ramsey offered Arsenal a major fitness boost ahead of their EFL Cup Final against Manchester City on Sunday by joining training today.

The Welsh midfielder has missed Arsenal’s last two games with a groin problem and fears had been growing that he would be unavailable for Wembley, though those now appear to have been allayed.

Ramsey is unlikely to play any part in Thursday’s Europa League round of 32 second-leg against Ostersund, where Wenger is expected to rotate with one eye on the clash with City 72 hours later.

Laurent Koscielny, Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are among those who are set to be held in reserve as Wenger bids to win the EFL Cup for the first time in his 21 year reign at Arsenal.

That means youngsters including Reiss Nelson, Calum Chambers and Joe Willock are in line to join a squad captained by Per Mertesacker.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Danny Welbeck are likely to be part of Wenger’s forward line, the former being ineligible for the EFL Cup after playing for Manchester United earlier in the competition.

Wenger has an almost entirely fully fit squad to be able to choose from, with Alexandre Lacazette  and Santi Cazorla the only absentees. The French striker is also a doubt for the round of 16 should Arsenal make it that far.

Possible Arsenal XI vs Ostersund: Ospina, Chambers, Mertesacker, Holding, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Elneny, Willock, Iwobi, Mkhitaryan, Welbeck.
