Arsenal will host Lens on November 29 in the last round of the Champions League.

The Gunners will secure top position in Group B if they defeat the French club at the Emirates Stadium, and a draw will suffice if PSV Eindhoven fail to beat Sevilla in the other group match.

Following a thrilling 1-0 Premier League win against Brentford, Mikel Arteta is expected to make changes to his starting lineup, with a decision on his custodian looming.

David Raya was ruled ineligible to play his parent side Brentford at the weekend, despite Aaron Ramsdale’s poor performance, and the Spaniard is expected to return in goal for Arteta.

Raya has started all four of Arsenal’s Champions League games this season, and his comeback appears to be a foregone conclusion for the hosts.

Arteta might also reward Kai Havertz for his late winner off the bench against Brentford by starting the German international in midfield.

Lens’ case is harmed further by striker Morgan Guilavogui’s unavailability owing to a one-game ban.

The following are the predicted starting lineups for both sides ahead of their Champions League encounter on November 29 at the Emirates Stadium.

Alongside expected recalls for Raya and Havertz, Arteta could also bring Ben White back into the starting XI, as he looks to ease him back into action following injury.
