Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang starts for Arsenal against Villarreal tonight.

Arteta has named an attacking lineup and Emile Smith Rowe, Martin Odegaard, Nicolas Pepe and Bukayo Saka also start.

Kieran Tierney and Alexandre Lacazette are on bench. Lacazette (hamstring) and Tierney (knee) have trained this week and Mikel Arteta has named them among the substitutes at Emirates Stadium.

It remains to be seen how Arsenal will line-up and who will play at left-back.

Granit Xhaka could continue to play there or it could be Saka.

David Luiz is misses out with the hamstring injury he suffered against Newcastle on Sunday.

In his absence, Arteta has stuck with with Pablo Mari and Rob Holding, who usually play well together.

Arsenal XI: Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Mari, Saka; Xhaka, Partey; Odegaard, Smith Rowe, Pepe; Aubameyang.

Subs: Ryan, Okonkwo, Tierney, Gabriel, Lacazette, Willian, Cedric, Chambers, Nelson, Elneny, Nketiah, Martinelli.
