Lacazette returns for Gunners Euro clash
Alexandre Lacazette will return for Arsenal when they take on Rennes in the Europa League on Thursday evening.
Lacazette's three-game ban has been reduced to two by UEFA, making him available for the Emirates clash, where the Gunners need to reverse a 3-1 first-leg deficit.
Midfielder Lucas Torreira, who also returns from a domestic suspension, hopes the presence of the Frenchman can help fire the Gunners through.
The Argentina ace said: "We all know how important Alex Lacazette is to us as a group and obviously the more players we have available the better it is because we do have some quality players, particularly in midfield and up top.
"Hopefully we will be able to make that danger pay. Let's just hope that Lacazette can help us to achieve the result tomorrow."
Elsewhere, Arsenal will assess Henrikh Mkhitaryan's back injury ahead of the game.
Mkhitaryan missed Sunday's Premier League win over his former club Manchester United but trained on Wednesday and will have a check before the game.
