Team news: Tomiyasu starts against Bayern

Tomiyasu post-Lens interview

Takehiro Tomiyasu, Jorginho and Gabriel Martinelli have been named in our starting line-up to face Bayern Munich this evening.

The trio replace Oleksandr Zinchenko, Leandro Trossard and Gabriel Jesus from Sunday’s 2-0 loss to Aston Villa, which means Mikel Arteta has opted to change just one player from the team that started the first leg, with Tomiyasu preferred to Jakub Kiwior.

Bayern meanwhile have made two changes to the side that lined up for the first leg a week ago. Noussair Mazraoui replaces the suspended Alphonso Davies, while Raphael Guerreiro lines up on the wing with Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry injured.

Having been rested in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Cologne as a precaution, Manuel Neuer returns between the posts, and Leroy Sane is deemed fit enough to start.

Bayern Munich: Neuer, Kimmich, Dier, De Ligt, Mazraoui, Goretzka, Laimer, Sane, Musiala, Guerreiro, Kane. 
Subs: Ulreich, Peretz, Kim, Upamecano, Pavlovic, Zaragoza, Tel, Choupo-Moting, Muller.

Arsenal: Raya, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu, Jorginho, Rice, Odegaard, Saka, Martinelli, Havertz. 
Subs: Ramsdale, Hein, Kiwior, Zinchenko, Partey, Elneny, Smith Rowe, Vieira, Nelson, Trossard, Jesus, Nketiah
