Their 3-2 triumph over Bournemouth in the Premier League was a spectacular display of resolve a skill, allowing them to preserve their five-point advantage over Manchester City at the top of the table.

The Gunners will seek to maintain their momentum and win more games in the Europa League with this victory under their belts.

Gabriel Jesus is nearing a comeback but won't be fit for this game, while Mohamed Elneny underwent knee surgery and will be out for a long. Leandro Trossard is anticipated to miss out due to a groin injury sustained during the Bournemouth match. Eddie Nketiah may start if he is able to participate. Tierney will miss the second leg of the match if he is given a yellow card.

Bukayo Saka has excelled for the Gunners this season, having already scored 11 goals and contributed 9 assists. Also, he has three goals in his previous five games, and his contribution will be essential to Arsenal's victory. He is a difficult player for defenders to contain due to his great speed and dribbling abilities, and it is anticipated that he will cause issues for the Sporting defenders.
