Team news & squads

Porto team news

Porto boss Sergio Conceicao was served with a fresh injury concern in Sunday's 2-0 league win against Estrela, as left-back Zaidu Sanusi was forced off with an ACL injury.

With the Nigerian possibly ruled out for the rest of the season, apart from Ivan Marcano suffering from a ACL injury of his own, Jorge Sanchez should join veteran Portuguese defender Pepe at the back against Arsenal.

Having missed the Estrela game, Stephen Eustaquio is a doubtful starter. So, Alan Varela is likely to feature in the middle once again, with Mehdi Taremi and Evanilson leading the attack.

Porto possible XI: Costa; Mario, Pepe, Otavio, Sanchez; Pepe, Varela, Gonzalez, Galeno; Taremi, Evanilson

Goalkeepers:Costa, Ramos, Portugal
Defenders:Cardoso, Otavio, Pedro, Pepe (De Lima Ferreira), Wendell, Mario, Sanchez
Midfielders:Varela, Grujic, Eustaquio, Gonzalez, Baro, Jaime, Franco, Pepe (Aquino Cossa)
Forwards:Evanilson, Teremi, Martinez, Namaso, Galeno, Conceicao, Borges

Arsenal team news

Jurrien Timber has been included Arteta's squad for the UCL knockouts despite still recovering from an ACL injury, while Thomas Partey and Fabio Vieira are ruled out due to their respective setbacks.

Back from an ankle problem to make the bench in the 5-0 league win over Burnley at the weekend, Emile Smith Rowe would remain a doubt alongside Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Arsenal possible XI: Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Kiwior; Odegaard, Rice, Havertz; Saka, Trossard, Martinelli

Goalkeepers:Ramsdale, Raya, Hein
Defenders:Saliba, Gabriel, Kiwior, Zinchenko, White, Tomiyasu, Soares
