Arsenal team news vs Vorskla: Predicted line up – Nketiah to start, Emery selection hint

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also unlikely to be called upon so youngster Eddie Nketiah could lead the line, with the 19-year-old one of 10 U23 players in the travelling squad.

Joe Willock, Emile Smith Rowe and Julio Pleguezuelo were all overlooked by U23s manager Freddie Ljungberg on Monday night against Derby and should feature in some respect against Vorskla.

Meanwhile, Charlie Gilmour, Tyreece John-Jules, Zech Medley, Jordi Osei-Tutu, Bukayo Saka and Dominic Thompson were all on the plane which left Luton Airport for Kiev on Wednesday as Emery bolstered his squad.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles could be deployed at left-back if Sead Kolasinac is rested ahead of the weekend, although the youngster may join Mohamed Elneny in midfield if Carl Jenkinson is utilised.
