Alexandre Lacazette unavailable for Arsenal’s second-leg clash with BATE Borisov

Arsenal will be without the suspended Alexandre Lacazette as they look to turn around their Europa League round of 32 tie at home to BATE Borisov on Thursday night.

The striker was sent off late on in a 1-0 defeat to the Belarusian champions a week ago and will miss the return leg.

Aaron Ramsey is fit following a knee injury and Mesut Ozil could be recalled, while Danny Welbeck (ankle), Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding (both knee) remain sidelined and Ainsley Maitland-Niles is fighting an illness.

Provisional squad: Leno, Cech, Jenkinson, Lichtsteiner, Koscielny, Mustafi, Papastathopoulos, Monreal, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Elneny, Torreira, Guendouzi, Iwobi, Ozil, Ramsey,  Suarez, Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang, Nketiah.
