Team News of Arsenal vs Rennes

 
Alexandre Lacazette has been cleared to play for Arsenal in the second leg of the Europa League last-16 tie against Rennes on Thursday after Uefa reduced his three-match suspension following an appeal.
 
Sokratis joins Lacazette in being banned, so Emery will need a defensive reshuffle. Laurent Koscielny suffered a cut on his leg against Man Utd, but should be fit.
 
Hector Bellerin (knee), Danny Welbeck (ankle) and Rob Holding (knee) remain out of contention, though Stephan Lichtsteiner is available.
 
Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding (both knee) and Danny Welbeck (ankle) remain long-term absentees, but Emery has an otherwise fully-fit squad.
 
Rennes right-back Romain Danze and midfielder Rafik Guitane remain unavailable through injury but there are no fresh concerns for the French side.
