Alexandre Lacazette starts up front for Arsenal in their Europa League quarter-final first-leg clash with CSKA Moscow.

Alexandre Lacazette has been named in the Arsenal starting XI for the first time since January in Thursday night's Europa League quarter-final first leg against CSKA Moscow.

The 26-year-old made his comeback from a knee injury on Sunday against Stoke City, coming off the bench and scoring the Gunners' third goal from the penalty spot in the 3-0 win at the Emirates Stadium.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech makes only his second Europa League appearance this season, with David Ospina out and Matt Macey on the bench.

Elsewhere, Laurent Koscielny comes in for Calum Chambers, Granit Xhaka is back in for Mohamed Elneny, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan is in for Danny Welbeck.

For CSKA, Leicester City loanee Ahmed Musa is named in the starting XI, playing up front alongside Sweden international Pontus Wernbloom.

Kirill Nababkin is missing through suspension, while the visitors will be without the injured duo of Mario Fernandes and Viktor Vasin.

Arsenal: Cech, Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Wilshere, Ramsey, Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Lacazette
Subs: Holding, Iwobi, Chambers, Welbeck, Kolasinac, El Neny, Macey

CSKA Moscow: Akinfeev, Shchennikov, A Berezutski, V Berezutski, Ignashevich, Kuchaev, Natcho, Dzagoev, Golovin, Musa, Wernbloom
Pomazun, Milanov, Vitinho, Bistrovic, Chalov, Zhamaletdinov, Khosonov
