Olympiakos v Arsenal line-ups

Arsenal will hand 20-year-old defender Jernade Meade his Champions League debut in tonight’s final Group B clash away to Olympiakos.

With qualification already secure for the knockout stages, if not top spot, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger rests several first-team regulars - and packs tonight’s bench with youngsters Zak Ansah, Swiss defenders Sead Hajrovic, Elton Monteiro and 17-year-old English striker Chuba Akpom.

Northern Ireland keeper Roy Carroll comes into the side for the Greeks, who will be out to repeat last season’s win here to secure seeding for the Europa League.

Olympiakos: Carroll, Diakite, Manolas, Contreras, Torosidis, Paulo Machado, Maniatis, Fejsa, Greco, Djebbour, Abdoun.

Subs: Megyeri, Ibagaza, Pantelic, Mitroglou, Fetfatzidis, David Fuster, Siovas

Arsenal: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Squillaci, Vermaelen, Meade, Coquelin, Rosicky, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chamakh, Gervinho.

Subs: Shea, Arshavin, Angha, Ansah, Hajrovic, Monteiro, Akpom.

Referee: Alberto Undiano Mallenco (Spain)
