Mikel Arteta is set to hand a start to Eddie Nketiah when Arsenal take on Molde in the Europa League on Thursday.

The Gunners secured their biggest win of the season on Sunday when they ran out 1-0 winners against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

For Europa League action, the Spaniard is set to make a few changes.

Pablo Mari, Calum Chambers, Gabriel Martinelli are all still injured, but David Luiz is fit and up for selection.

It is likely Arteta will name a stronger line-up than the one which featured against Dundalk, which means Gabriel could retain his place in the heart of the defence after starring against Man Utd.

Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac could come into the three-man backline, however.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles should be given a starting in the left of the midfield four, with Dani Ceballos and Joe Willock in the middle.

Cedric will start to the right of the midfield.

Nicolas Pepe will probably feature on the right of the front three, joined by Nketiah and Reiss Nelson.
