"I can give you [the goalkeeping] position for tomorrow with Leno, but other players I prefer to first say to the players officially that they are in the first XI".

Sead Kolasinac and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are both still working their way back from injuries and Nacho Monreal is due a rest after playing the full 90 minutes in each of our last four Premier League matches.

The way Arsenal play they don't do clean sheets, so I am going to go for a 2-1 win and Mkhitaryan to score first.

That means we should see Petr Cech, Hector Bellerin, Sokratis, Granit Xhaka, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all rested ahead of our Premier League clash with Everton on Sunday.

"He is in the starting line-up after we have spoken with Javi Garcia, the goalkeeping coach", Emery confirmed. "We want him to go a long way here at Arsenal - he is young".

"I will start with Leno to give him his minutes and his chances in the game in this competition, but we are going to continue to look and test in every match". "I am very happy with his work every day and I am looking forward to him playing well".

Key will be the views of Collins and Sen. "I don't know if that's fair", Durbin, a Judiciary Committee member, said on CNN . Ford is "not taking a position" on whether Kavanaugh should withdraw his nomination, Katz said.

"But we need to improve each goalkeeper in our style". His decision is a private one which I respect.

Emery will use the game to blood some of his fringe players but is keen to do well in the Europa League to mend a hole in Arsenal's history under Arsene Wenger. "Every title for us is very important", he said. "But each goalkeeper they have different qualities, Petr, Bernd and Emi".

Unai Emery - who won the competition three times with Sevilla - is expected to ring the changes, with Leno yet to feature for the Gunners since his summer move from Bayer Leverkusen.

Arsenal were the losing semi-finalists in the Europa League previous year, but Vorskla Poltava manager Vasyl Sachko says his side are capable of getting a win.

"In 2000, Arsenal played the final against Galatasaray but didn't win. But we want to try as I am sure we want to play Champions League next year".
