Runar Alex Runarsson, and Emile Smith-Rowe are the two injured players in the Arsenal squad.

Four players have scored the topmost goals for Arsenal this season with each of them scoring three goals apiece. Pepe, Willock, Aubameyang, and Nketiah have all found the back of the net on three occasions in this Europa League alone.
