So here is the full travelling squad

So here is the full travelling squad

Playing the way they did in France on Thursday however and they'll be lucky to make it through to the next round of the Europa League.

However, Sokratis Papastathopoulos was given his marching orders when he picked up a second yellow card in the 41st minute and Benjamin Bourigeaud subsequently equalised following the free-kick.

Rennes had their Ligue 1 game at Nimes rescheduled from Saturday by the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) to allow them more time to prepare for Arsenal's visit while the Premier League side played rivals Tottenham Hotspur in a 1-1 draw.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were discovered collapsed on a park bench near a shopping mall on March 4, 2018. Intelligence services continue to believe it was ordered at "the highest level in the Russian state", the source said.

Arsenal enjoyed the ideal start but their early goal came in fortuitous circumstances, with Iwobi's inswinging cross from the left evading everyone and going into the net via the inside of the back post. Referee Anthony Taylor had little option but to show the 23-year-old a straight red, but Arsenal did decide to submit an appeal to the FA over the decision, in the hope of having the suspension overturned. It had barely bounced once however before he ran onto it and unleashed an absolute thunderbastard past Petr Cech in the Arsenal goal.

Arsenal went close again after 28 minutes as Shkodran Mustafi's fired agonisingly wide of the far post after a well-worked free kick, but Rennes had the better of the closing stages of the first half.

The result is not a truly bad one as Unai Emery's side still return to London with an away goal in their back pockets.
