Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck are among those included in a much-changed Arsenal side for the Europa League game in Germany.

Jack Wilshere plays, but Theo Walcott is still struggling with illness and misses out again.

Reiss Nelson, who had been expected to start, is instead among the youngsters on Arsenal’s bench.

Calum Chambers starts – seemingly at right wing-back.

The Gunners have already qualified for the knockout stage.

Arsenal: Ospina; Debuchy, Mertesacker, Holding; Chambers, Elneny, Coquelin, Maitland-Niles; Wilshere, Welbeck, Giroud.
Subs: Macey, Sheaf, Willock, Nelson, Iwobi, Akpom, Nketiah.
