Arsenal are up against Villarreal in their Europa League semi-final second leg tonight and have to overturn a 2-1 deficit.

The Gunners are down but not out and a solid performance at the Emirates will seem them into the final, where they’ll likely join Manchester United.

Mikel Arteta could be handed a significant boost by the potential return of Kieran Tierney, who was missing from the first leg.

Granit Xhaka was elected to stand-in for the full-back, but the Scot coming back into the side would allow the midfielder to assume his typical position alongside Thomas Partey.

In goal will be Bernd Leno, and he’ll have a back four of Pablo Mari, Rob Holding, Calum Chambers and Tierney. David Luiz looks set to miss out after picking up an injury against Newcastle United.

A deep-lying midfield duo of Partey and Xhaka seems nailed-on – if Tierney does indeed return – with Martin Odegaard, Nicolas Pepe and Bukayo Saka playing ahead of them, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the central attacker.
