Arsenal must overcome Bo Henriksen’s FC Zurich in their last Europa League Group A match to guarantee top position in the knockout rounds.

Arsenal can qualify for the Europa League knockout rounds as Group A winners if they overcome Swiss champions FC Zurich in their last group match on Thursday.

With last week’s 2-0 defeat to PSV Eindhoven, the Gunners suffered a minor setback in their quest for European glory, and despite winning their first four games, only two points separate the sides ahead of their final fixtures, while PSV’s superior goal difference means a draw against Zurich would not necessarily be enough for Arsenal to claim top spot.

But the Swiss outfit will be no pushovers on the night, with qualification for the Europa Conference League play-offs via a third-place finish still a possibility with a victory against Arsenal.

When is Arsenal vs FC Zurich?

Arsenal vs Zurich will kick-off at t8pm on Thursday, November 3 at the Emirates Stadium.

The last meeting between these two sides came in the reverse fixture back in September, when the Gunners got their Europa League campaign off to the perfect start with a 2-1 victory at the Kybunpark in St. Gallen.

Summer signing Marquinhos had a debut to remember as he put the Gunners ahead after just 16 minutes, before assisting Eddie Nketiah’s 62 minute winner to secure all three points after Mirlind Kryeziu’s penalty on the stroke of half-time got the hosts on level terms.

How to watch

The match will be televised live on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport Ultimate, while there will also be a live stream service online via the BT Sport app and BT Sport website.

Arsenal’s defeat to PSV last week means that Mikel Arteta will not be able to rest as many of his first team players for the visit of Zurich as he would have liked, with the Gunners expected to name a strong side as they aim to secure top spot in Group A.

Nonetheless, Rob Holding, Kieran Tierney, Fabio Vieira and Eddie Nketiah should all come back into the side, while Albert Sambi Lokonga and Reiss Nelson should replace Granit Xhaka (suspension) and Bukayo Saka (ankle). Oleksandr Zinchenko (calf) and Matt Turner (groin) remain doubts, while Mohamed Elneny (thigh) and Emile Smith Rowe (groin) are out.

The visitors’ victory over Bodo/Glimt last week has left them requiring three points against the Gunners to clinch their position in the Europa Conference League play-offs, therefore Bo Henriksen should name his strongest side for this match.

The sole change from the weekend triumph against Bodo/Glimt was Antonio Marchesano replacing the injured Blerim Dzemaili in midfield, with the same expected again. Fabian Rohner returns from suspension, although the visitors are without Kryeziu, Ilan Sauter, Donis Avdijaj, and Miguel Reichmuth due to injuries.
