Arsenal will be boosted by the availability of their big hitters as they tackle La Liga side Sevilla, eyeing a win to get their Champions League campaign back on track
Arsenal are in Seville as they look to get back on track in the Champions League against Sevilla on Tuesday.
The Gunners' only defeat of the season to date came away to Lens earlier this month, but Mikel Arteta's side have since followed that up by taking four points from Premier League matches against Manchester City and Chelsea.
They will still be confident of progressing from Group B, with all four sides already dropping points in the opening two matches.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta rejects claims that David Raya is caving under the pressure of being Arsenal's new first-choice goalkeeper.
Sevilla have started their European campaign with draws against PSV and Lens, and sit only three points outside the relegation zone in La Liga after a stumbling run of form, though they did hold Real Madrid to a point on Saturday.
Sevilla have Erik Lamela available again after a muscle injury, but Marcao and Mariano Diaz are expected to miss out.
Sergio Ramos is expected to captain the side again after his summer return to the club, with Jesus Navas and Marcos Acuna likely tasked with keeping Arsenal's wide players quiet.

Arsenal fans have asked that Mikel Arteta restore Aaron Ramsdale back to the starting lineup after Raya’s error against Chelsea.
Aaron Ramsdale missed the Chelsea match due to his wife giving birth to a baby boy, but the Gunners should have him back in contention to face Sevilla.
That will provide Arteta with a selection headache, after David Raya's struggles at Stamford Bridge. Kai Havertz is also pushing to start.
Thomas Partey could come back into the side, with Jorginho likely dropping out, while Leandro Trossard, Fabio Vieira and Takehiro Tomiyasu are all pushing for starts too. Jurrien Timber remains the only long-term injury absentee.

The ex-Arsenal striker retired in 2021 and has now taken up a bizarre job on a Danish TV show.
