Bodo/Glimt vs Arsenal – 5.15pm (5.45pm kick-off) on BT Sport 2 – Live stream

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta made eight changes to the starting line-up when Bodo/Glimt arrived in north London last week. And with a hard-fought win over Liverpool at the weekend and Leeds to come this Sunday, Arteta is likely to switch things up again when his team travel to Norway.

The Gunners won the home encounter 3-0 last week with goals from Eddie Nketiah, Rob Holding and Fabio Vieira. All three are likely to start the reverse fixture, alongside the likes of Kieran Tierney, Sambi Lokonga, Marquinhos, and goalkeeper Matt Turner.

Emile Smith Rowe and Mohamed Elneny remain out for the Gunners, but Reiss Nelson could get some more minutes.

Arsenal currently top Group A despite only playing two matches, with their re-arranged Matchday 2 tie at home to PSV Eindhoven set for Thursday 20 October.

A win in Norway would make it extremely unlikely for any team to halt their progress towards the knockout stages going into two trickier back-to-back ties against PSV. The Dutch side are the Gunners’ main challengers for top spot. 

Man Utd vs Omonia Nicosia – 7.15pm (8pm kick-off) on BT Sport 1 – Live stream

The Red Devils made hard work of defeating Omonia Nicosia in Cyprus last week. They managed to get over the line and take all three points in the end, thanks largely to Erik ten Hag’s second-half substitutions, which resulted in Anthony Martial scoring and Marcus Rashford bagging a brace.

The Dutch manager made the subs after recognising that his side were too static in the first half.

At Old Trafford they’ll need to play on the front foot. With the crowd behind them, it’s hard to see anything other than a victory for ten Hag’s team.

A win at Goodison Park on Sunday night will give United added belief – a game in which Cristiano Ronaldo recorded his 700th club goal.

The Portuguese superstar could start this fixture too, just as he did in the reverse match, though ten Hag could opt to start him from the bench with Newcastle at home approaching this weekend.

Whether CR7 starts or not, United are likely to field a strong starting line-up. They need a win to stay in touch with group leaders Real Sociedad, who are expected to win their tie against Sheriff Tiraspol. The hosts will want to win the group to avoid a knockout round playoff.

United have injury concerns over Martial, who was subbed off against Everton. However, Harry Maguire could return to the squad, as could Donny van de Beek.
