Arsenal welcome Zurich to the Emirates in the Europa League Group A finale after last weekend’s 5-0 thrashing of Nottingham Forest.

Top spot is still up for grabs, meaning Mikel Arteta’s side will need to match or better PSV’s result against Bodo/Glimt.

Failure to do so, after suffering a damaging defeat in Eindhoven last week to hand the Dutch giants a superior head-to-head record, will intensify their schedule with a play-off against a third-placed Champions League outfit.

A fascinating London derby with Chelsea on Sunday is also a factor here, with Arteta tasked with finding the balance between remaining fresh and qualifying as group winners.

Here’s everything you need to know.

When is Arsenal vs Zurich?

The match will kick off at 8pm GMT on Thursday 3 November.

How can I watch it?

It will be shown live on BT Sport 2, with coverage starting from 7:30pm GMT. BT Sport customers can also stream the match live on the BT Sport website and mobile app.

Confirmed line-ups

Arsenal XI: Ramsdale; White, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Vieira, Elneny, Lokonga; Nelson, Jesus, Nketiah

Zurich XI: Brecher; Mets, Aliti, Kamberi; Boranijasevic, Selnaes, Conde, Guerrero; Marchesano; Okita, Tosin

Odds

Arsenal: 1/8

Draw: 7/1

Zurich: 16/1

Prediction

The Gunners will rotate here, with Chelsea in mind, despite not securing top spot yet. Despite less familiarity among the line-up Mikel Arteta will likely select, the extra quality, even from the bench, should make for a comfortable win over the Swiss side. Arsenal 3-1 Zurich
