Ones to watch
Arsenal: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Others have been making headlines in an Arsenal jersey across their European games this season but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang undoubtedly remains the Gunners’ most potent scoring threat. The Gabonese marksman will be relishing getting his name on the scoresheet later this week.
Key stat: No one has scored more goals in the Premier League than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this season (17).
Olympiacos: Youssef El-Arabi
Youssef El-Arabi has already scored in north London this season and if he is to do so again, the Moroccan striker — who has been effective in Europe this season — will be hoping the result is different. On their last visit Olympiacos, who sensationally raced into a 2-0 lead against Spurs in José Mourinho’s first European game in charge of the club, ultimately lost 4-2.
Key stat: Youssef El-Arabi scored three goals in the Champions League this season, more than any other Olympiacos player.

The Gunners will be buoyed by last week’s result and know Olympiacos need to come out swinging, which could play into their hands. Mikel Arteta finally has a forward line firing on all cylinders and with Mesut Ozil pulling the strings it should be enough to see Arsenal reach the next round.
