Arsene Wenger has announced his starting XI for the Europa League quarter-final match against CSKA Moscow and fans are delighted to see striker Alexandre Lacazette starting.
This is suddenly a big deal, with Arsenal just three ties away from getting a spot in next year’s Champions League.
The team news was announced on the official Arsenal Twitter page ahead of the 8.05pm kick-off.

The top four in the Premier League has gone, but Arsenal could do what Man United managed last year and sneak into Europe’s elite competition through the back door with Europa victory.
And Wenger’s side is on a high after a string of four consecutive wins – two against AC Milan and two against Stoke and Watford in the Premier League.
They’ve scored 11 in these games and only conceded one, which means they could be hitting form just at the right time.
And with Lacazette back for his first start since January, fans are excited.
Here are the best reactions to Lacazette starting against the Russian side tonight at the Emirates:
Lacazette Ozil Mkhi! Get in!!!
