LONDON ENGLAND- NOVEMBER 03 Unai Emery Manager of Arsenal looks on during the Premier League match between Arsenal FC and Liverpool FC at Emirates Stadium

Prior to kick-off the North Londoners had won all three of their games in this competition and would seal top spot with two games to spare with a home triumph.

Sokratis could be given a start this week, even though he has just returned from his knock.

Petr Cech also played, along with starlet Emile Smith Rowe as did Carl Jenkinson.

Unai Emery said a point against Sporting Lisbon was not enough for Arsenal in their quest to win their Europa League group.

The move to replace the manager was precipitated by Danny Welbeck's victor in Arsenal's 1-0 win over Sporting in Portugal two weeks ago at a raucous Estadio Jose Alvalade.

Iwobi has become a regular fixture in the Gunners' set-up with a goal and four assists this season.

Arsenal had already beaten Thursday's opponents in this season's tournament, triumphing 1-0 in Portugal last month, and Emery said the draw at the Emirates had demonstrated the significance of securing that prior win in Lisbon.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan of Arsenal crosses during the Europa League match at the Emirates Stadium.

Stephan Lichtsteiner played the ball into the 27-year-old in a crowded box.

The potential absence of Welbeck leaves Arsenal short of options in the attacking third of the pitch as Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remain the only genuine forwards in the squad, although it remains to be seen whether the Gunners hierarchy hand manager Unai Emery funds to sign new players during the January transfer window.

He received oxygen and had his leg in a protective brace as he was taken off the pitch, with up to 10 medical staff around him as he received treatment. He will be one of the players worth looking forward to tonight.
