Arsenal vs Dundalk LIVE: Team news, line-ups and more ahead of Europa League fixture tonight

Arsenal host Dundalk in their second Europa League game of the season having come from behind to beat Rapid Vienna in the Group B opener. The Irish champions are massive underdogs here and lost 2-1 at home to Molde in the other contest in this group to kick things off, though they did lead through Sean Murray.

Gunners manager Mikel Arteta has said it hurt him to leave defender William Saliba out of his Europa League squad, a decision that looks to have backfired with the club face mounting injury problems at the centre back position.

Saliba and Sokratis Papastathopoulos were not registered for the competition, and with Rob Holding, Calum Chambers, Pablo Mari and David Luiz all injured Arteta is left with Shkodran Mustafi and Gabriel Magalhaes as his only centre backs for Thursday's match against Irish side Dundalk. "I feel really bad for William Saliba," Arteta told reporters. "Because we had so many central defenders, we decided to leave him out of the squad, which was really hurtful for me to do."

Massive chance for Antwerp. Mbokani misses a sitter, with the goal at his mercy, he blasts over the bar from no more than five yards out.

Major let-off for Spurs. Should be 2-0.

ROYAL ANTWERP 1-0 TOTTENHAM

HT: Antwerp leading at half-time.

Fully warranted, as the home side have played with much more vigour than Spurs, who have looked defensively suspect and have offered little as an attacking force.
