Arsenal have submitted their updated squad for the knockout stages of the Europa League, with new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan amongst those included.

Mkhitaryan isn’t permitted to wear number seven in the Europa League as Alexis Sanchez has already worn that number for Arsenal this season, with the Armenian instead allocated number 77.

Injured midfielder Santi Cazorla, who wasn’t named in Arsenal’s previous squad, has been included on this occasion, as has Konstantinos Mavropanos, who joined the club last month.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, however, isn’t eligible for inclusion as his previous club Borussia Dortmund are now also in the Europa League and he has already played in the group stages of a European competition this season.

Youngsters Xavier Amaechi, Trae Coyle and Joseph Olowu are all included on the B-List having signed their first professional contracts with the club.

Defender Zech Medley and goalkeeper Alex Crean are the only players with professional contracts who aren’t on loan who have been left out as they aren’t eligible for inclusion on the B-List.
