Arsenal fans react as Mikel Arteta names team to face Olympiacos

The Gunners boss has named a strong line-up for this evening.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has taken no chances with his team selection for this evening’s game with Olympiacos in the Europa League.

The Gunners lead 1-0 from the first leg in Athens and Arteta has gone full strength for the contest.

Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, David Luiz and the in-form Bukayo Saka make up the back four.

Granit Xhaka is winning supporters over after his public spat earlier in the season and he starts in midfield alongside Dani Ceballos.

Alexandre Lacazette is expected to spearhead the attack, with Nicolas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang flanking him.

Mesut Ozil will operate in his natural No.10 role as he looks to build on his recent good form.

Following this announcement Arsenal supporters have taken to Twitter to speak of their delight at the decision to go strong.

Arsenal are chasing Europe and winning this competition would hand them a back door route into the Champions League.

Olympiacos went 2-0 up at Tottenham in the Champions League earlier in the season before eventually losing and they do offer a significant threat.

Here is a selection of tweets from the Arsenal supporters ahead of tonight’s contest.
