Greek youngster Dinos Mavropanos starts in central defence for Arsenal.
The 21-year-old is making just his second appearance of the season, partnering Laurent Koscielny at the heart of Unai Emery’s defence.
Emery makes six changes to the side that beat Napoli last time out – no doubt with one eye on the return leg in just a few days’ time.
In come Bernd Leno, Mavropanos, Shkodran Mustafi, Granit Xhaka, Alex Iwobi and Henrik Mkhitaryan.
They replace Petr Cech, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Sead Kolasinac, Mesut Özil and Alexandre Lacazette.
Lucas Torreira starts after serving his three-match ban following his red card in the north London derby.
Starting XI: Leno, Koscielny, Mavropanos, Mustafi, Monreal, Ramsey, Torreira, Xhaka, Iwobi, Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang
