Arsenal travel to Norway to take on Molde knowing a victory would guarantee qualification to the knockout phase of the Europa League.

The Gunners currently sit top of Group B after winning all of their opening three matches.

In the reverse fixture, Mikel Arteta’s side cruised to a 4-1 win at the Emirates Stadium earlier this month.

Now the North London side, who will want to end a two-match winless run in all competitions, will be aiming for a similar performance on Thursday.

With a big squad to choose from and games coming thick and fast, which players will Arteta task with trying to secure qualification with two games to spare?

Here we predict the Arsenal starting XI to take on Molde…


Despite being rested for one of three Europa League matches so far, first-choice stopper Bernd Leno is expected to take his place between the sticks again. The German was in top form at the weekend as he helped his side secure a 0-0 draw at Leeds United. Arteta will hope his goalkeeper won’t be as busy in this one but knows he has someone reliable if Molde do trouble the Arsenal goal.
