TEAM NEWS! Arsenal Release Squad To Battle Valencia On Thursday In Europa League

Unai Emery has flown out with his Arsenal squad on Wednesday, ahead of their Europa League semi-final clash second leg.

Emery leads the Gunners against his former club, Valencia, on Thursday night, seeking his fourth Europa League final.

Arsenal lead 3-1 from the first leg.

Laurent Koscielny was only fit enough for a place on the bench at the weekend but he is now ready and raring to go; Emery must decided whether to bring him into a back four or revert to three at the back.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who again disappointed at the weekend, has travelled, and so has Eddie Nketiah, the young striker.

The Gunners will be without Aaron Ramsey again with the Juventus-bound midfielder’s career having been ended by an hamstring injury.

Goalkeepers: Petr Cech, Bernd Leno.
