Unai Emery handed a debut to goalkeeper Bernd Leno, who joined the Gunners from Bayer Leverkusen, while Stephan Lichsteiner, Lucas Torreira and Henrikh Mkhitaryan returned to the line up.

'Well, Lucas is playing with his progress on the team and on our ideas, our performance with a passion and with a performance, ' he said.

And he said one moment in particular, where the 22-year-old threw his head into a challenge on the floor, reminded him of himself when he played.
