Thomas Partey has been handed his full Arsenal debut in their Europa League opener against Rapid Vienna.
The £45million signing from Atletico Madrid made his Gunners bow as an 83rd-minute substitute in last weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Man City.
But he will get the chance to impress from the start in Austria as Arsenal look to kickstart their Europa League campaign with a win.
Alexandre Lacazette has been named captain and will have Nicolas Pepe and Eddie Nketiah alongside him in attack.
Elsewhere, Bernd Leno keeps his place in goal, meaning Alex Runarsson will be forced to wait to make his Arsenal debut.
Meanwhile, Shkodran Mustafi has recovered from a hamstring injury to make a first matchday squad of the season.
