Arsenal v Eintracht Frankfurt Live Commentary & Result, 28/11/2019, UEFA Europa League

ARSENAL XI (3-4-2-1): Emiliano Martinez; Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, David Luiz; Callum Chambers, Joe Willock, Granit Xhaka, Kieran Tierney; Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka; Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

If you think of Arsenal against German sides, the constant thrashings at the hands of Bayern Munich instantly spring to mind. But more generally, the Gunners have lost more European home games against German sides than they have against opponents from any other nation.

Unai Emery is a manager under pressure, but a result against Eintracht and safe passage the next round of the Europa League would perhaps go some way to relieving some of the tension engulfing the club. A middling season in the Bundesliga sees Eintracht residing in 10th, so a cup run would be equally as welcome – and a win in London would see them go just a point behind Arsenal with a game to play.

Hello and welcome to live coverage of matchday five in the Europa League. It’s Arsenal up against Eintracht Frankfurt at Emirates Stadium.
