Goal Scorer:

As well as known injury victims Thomas Partey (thigh), Jurrien Timber (knee) and Emile Smith Rowe (knee), Arsenal were unable to call upon the services of first-choice goalkeeper David Raya or fringe playmaker Fabio Vieira for the beating of Brentford owing to ineligibility and suspension respectively.

While Brentford loanee Raya is virtually guaranteed to bump Ramsdale back down to the bench after the confidence-sapped Englishman's nervy display over the weekend, Arteta revealed that Vieira has undergone surgery on a groin injury, which will keep him sidelined for a number of weeks.

Whether Havertz's Brentford winner is the catalyst needed for the German to turn his fortunes around remains to be seen, but the German is surely back in Arteta's thinking for a start here, especially if the Arsenal boss errs on the side of caution with Jesus's fitness.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Odegaard, Rice, Havertz; Saka, Trossard, Martinelli

While Arteta's ranks are boosted by the return of a suspended player, Lens have lost one of their own to the naughty step, as winger Morgan Guilavogui must serve a ban for his late sending-off in the loss to PSV last time out; the 25-year-old sustained a back injury at the weekend anyway.

Keeping with the theme of ill-discipline, a fracas between Lens striker Elye Wahi and Clermont's Alidu Seidu at the weekend ended with both men being given their marching orders - as well as Lanciers coach Pascal Gastien - but the former is fine to take part in this one as he endeavours to replicate his winning strike from Lens' previous triumph over the Gunners.

A much-needed boost for Haise comes in the shape of Kevin Danso, with the defender expected to be fit for Wednesday after a foot injury, as is left-back Deiver Machado (adductor), while ACL victims Jimmy Cabot and Wuilker Farinez remain absent.
Lens possible starting lineup:
Samba; Medina, Danso, Gradit; Aguilar, Abdul Samed, Mendy, Frankowski; Thomasson, Sotoca; Wahi
Prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Lens
