Arsenal will play Bodo/Glimt with the absent of their main striker Gabriel Jesus as the Brazilian not among the squad that travel to Norway.
Jesus was forced off late in Sunday victory over Liverpool and is expected to be fit to face Leeds at the weekend,
but has not been risked ahead of Thursday night’s meeting at the Aspmyra Stadium.
“We thought that with everything he has been through in the last few weeks we thought it was better that he was staying there.”
Arsenal will also be without Oleksandr Zinchenko, which will give Kieran Tierney chances to start at left-back, having been left out of the XI against Liverpool in favour of Takehiro Tomiyasu.
Arteta is expected to heavily rotate his side, as he has done throughout the Europa League group stage so far, as the Gunners look to cement their position at the top
That should mean opportunities for the likes of Matt Turner in goal, Rob Holding, Cedric Soares, Marquinhos and Eddie Nketiah.
Predicted Arsenal XI (4-3-3):
Cedric, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney;
Vieira, Lokonga, Odegaard;
Marquinhos, Nketiah, Martinelli
