Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. BATE Borisov

Sports Mole looks at the latest injury and suspension news for Arsenal ahead of Thursday's Europa League clash with BATE Borisov.

Arsenal play host to BATE Borisov on Thursday night needing to overcome a deficit in order to progress through to the last 16 of the Europa League.

The Gunners had been favourites to establish a first-leg advantage when facing BATE in Belarus, but Unai Emery watched his side suffer a 1-0 defeat.

Emery had opted to name a strong starting lineup against a team who Arsenal defeated 4-2 and 6-0 respectively last season, but the North London outfit were unable to make the breakthrough.

However, Arsenal's preparations for the second leg at the Emirates Stadium are aided by a free weekend courtesy of their fourth-round exit from the FA Cup.

Here, Sports Mole looks at Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their encounter with the Belarusian champions.
