Alexandre Lacazette could make his first start since 30 January for Arsenal who host CSKA Moscow in the Europa League quarter-final first-leg on Thursday.

"Arsenal fans get a lot of stick on social media and people laugh at them". They've changed a few players since past year.

"Now, they are looking at the club falling away and nothing being done".

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has praised Arsenal fans for staying away from the Emirates stadium for the weekends Premier League game against Stoke City.

In the absence of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Lacazette is expected to lead Arsenal's attack on Thursday. He got the winning goal against Olympique Lyonnais in the last round of the competition, and also hit the victor against Rostov to secure all three points in their previous Russian Premier League clash.

It'll include Teammate Customisation , the Sabotage PvP game mode with five new maps, and finally a new PvE mission, all for free. The Special Operations will come with "highly community-requested features", free missions, and challenges.

These two sides faced each other in the group stage of 2006-07 Champions League.

Arsenal have scored 11 goals in their last four games in all competitions while conceding only one. They have won their last four matches, including a highly impressive 3-2 win at Lyon in the last 16, although that may say more about Lyon's mental shortcomings rather than CSKA's proficiency. In addition, Mario Fernandes is doubtful with a hamstring issue and Kirill Nababkin is suspended. "I have not decided he will start but he is available and ready to start". Not only is it a route back into the Champions League, but it is important for Wenger to win a European trophy with the Gunners, something he has hitherto failed to do.

Here is how we feel the Gunners will line up. We are backing the French striker as our prediction in this game.

For CSKA, Ahmed Musa is available at 17/4 odds at the same bookmaker.

Wenger also refused to reveal whether he would stick with David Ospina, who has been Arsenal's first-choice Europa League goalkeeper, or go with Petr Cech, fit again following a minor groin problem.
