    With four wins out of four, Arsenal are through to the UEFA Europa League knockout phase for the fourth successive season and need just a point on Matchday 5 at home to a revived Rapid Wien to secure first place in Group B.

    Both clubs come into this fixture having completed the double over group rivals, Arsenal seeing off Molde 4-1 at home and 3-0 away while Rapid, who lost their first two games, also scored seven goals in twice beating Dundalk (4-3 h, 3-1 a). The Austrian side are level with Molde on six points and know that irrespective of the result in north London they will go into their final fixture, at home to the Norwegian side, with their qualifying fate in their own hands.

    Welcome to our live blog of Arsenal v Rapid Vienna

    The Gunners are already through to the last 32 of the Europa League after winning all four of their group games, and beat the visitors 2-1 in Austria.

    Rapid Vienna are third in the group, level on points with Molde and will be looking to build on last month’s 3-1 win over Dundalk .

    Mikel Arteta’s side will be without Thomas Partey, the summer signing from Atletico Madrid is likely to remain on the treatment table until 2021.

    David Luiz will sit this one out after his sickening clash of heads with Wolves striker Raul Jiminez during Sunday’s 2-1 defeat.

    Ivorian winger Nicolas Pepe is likely to start amid his domestic ban and Reiss Nelson who was dropped in favour of Willian on Sunday is also expected to get the nod.

    Gunners captain Pierre-Emerick Aubamenyang’s poor form continued against Wolves despite being deployed in a more familiar central role, the Gabon international is likely to be replaced by either Alexandre Lacazette or Eddie Nketiah.

    Rapid Vienna will be without midfield duo Dejan Petrovic and Dejan Ljubicic, both are close to returning to first team action; but the trip to north London has come too early.

    Multiple changes are unlikely for the away side; Greek forward Taxiarchis Fountas scored in the reverse fixture and should get the nod at the Emirates after he came off the bench during Sunday’s 1-1 draw in the Vienna derby.
