Hector Bellerin and Aaron Ramsey both start for Arsenal in Thursday's Europa League test against AC Milan.

Bellerin did not travel with his team-mates to Italy for the first leg due to suffering from a knee injury, but he is back to full fitness for the match at Emirates Stadium where he replaces Calum Chambers at right-back.

Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey starts in midfield despite Ryan Giggs admitting that the 26-year-old will undergo surgery during the upcoming international break.

David Ospina starts in goal while Danny Welbeck is back upfront due to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang being cup tied for the Europa League.

Meanwhile, AC Milan start with former Liverpool striker Fabio Borini at right-back for the second consecutive game
