Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Rapid Vienna

Arsenal will kick off their 2020-21 Europa League challenge with a trip to Rapid Vienna on Thursday night.

The Gunners earned a spot in the group stages of the European competition courtesy of winning last season's FA Cup and will be looking to make an impression in the tournament.

Mikel Arteta 's side will enter the match off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday, but the capital outfit have shown signs of improvement this term.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the meeting with Rapid Vienna, who are currently second in the Austrian Bundesliga.
