Arsenal return to Europa League action on Thursday as they visit Molde in Norway.
The Gunners haven’t scored in their last two matches either side of the international break, so a return to continental action could come at the right time as they’ve hit nine goals in three games in this competition so far.
Last time out Arsenal were held to a goalless draw by Leeds and had Nicolas Pepe sent-off, with the forward having to apologise for his senseless headbutt.
Molde put themselves in a good position in the group early on with two wins, though back-to-back defeats would leave second place looking wide open once more.
Arsenal will be without a number of players as Willian and Bukayo Saka were taken off with injuries against Leeds, while Mohamed Elneny and Sead Kolasinac tested positive for coronavirus last week.
Youngsters Folarin Balogun, Ben Cottrell and Miguel Azeez have all made the trip to Norway, with the Gunners boss using this competition to allow up-and-coming players to impress, and he may rotate his squad to allow the three to make their debuts.
Arteta is likely to fill his XI with other young players, including Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and potentially Emile Smith-Rowe.
For Molde, Kristoffer Haraldseid remains absent after the right-back suffered a cruciate ligament injury in June. But Erling Moe is looking to put out a full-strength team as his side prepare to face Arsenal for the second time in UEFA competition.
Arsenal: Leno, Cedric, Mustafi, Luiz, Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Ceballos, Nelson, Willock, Smith-Rowe, Nketiah.
Molde: Linde, Wingo, Bjornbak, Gregersen, Haugen, Hussain, Aursnes, Ellingsen, Eikrem, Brynhildsen, Bolly.
