While things aren’t going according to plan in the Premier League, Arsenal have made a perfect start to their Europa League campaign and find themselves on the verge of qualifying for the knockout stage.

It’s not essential that Arsenal win, but Mikel Arteta will want to seal qualification with a couple of matches to spare ahead of another busy period.

Molde remain second in Group B, despite their 4-1 defeat to Arsenal in the reverse fixture at the start of the month.

Molde vs Arsenal: Match preview

Arsenal travel to Norway for their Europa League clash against Molde on Thursday night.

Arsenal were 4-1 winners when the sides met at the Emirates Stadium in the first week of November. Martin Ellingsen gave Molde a surprise lead but Arsenal were back on level terms before the break thanks to a Kristoffer Haugen own goal.

Arsenal took the lead shortly after the hour mark, again through a Molde own goal. Nicolas Pepe and Joe Willock also got on the scoresheet.

Arsenal have won 3 out of 3 in Group B and are on the verge of qualifying for the knockout phase. A win on Thursday would guarantee the Gunners a top-two finish. A draw would also be good enough to qualify, provided Dundalk avoid defeat against Rapid Vienna in the other group game – although that seems unlikely.

Will Molde surprise Arsenal?

Despite their heavy defeat in the reverse fixture, Molde remain in a solid position. Erling Moe’s side are 2nd in Group B, 3 points above Rapid Vienna and 3 behind Arsenal.

Arsenal have failed to win either of their two matches since beating Molde. Mikel Arteta’s side lost 3-0 at home to Villa before the international break and were held to a 0-0 draw at Leeds on Sunday. Arsenal are 12th in the Premier League on 13 points from 9 matches played.

Molde remain 2nd in the Norwegian Eliteserien following Saturday’s 3-0 away win at Stabaek. Leke James scored twice while Stian Rode Gregersen was also on the scoresheet.

After finishing 2nd in the league last season, Molde were entered into the first qualifying round of the Champions League. They won 3 consecutive ties to reach the playoff round, where they eventually lost on away goals to Ferencvaros and dropped down to the Europa League group stage.

Thursday’s match will be the first time Molde are hosting English opposition in UEFA competition.

Arsenal have faced Norwegian opposition 5 times previously in UEFA competition, winning 4 and drawing 1.

Molde team news vs Arsenal

Nigerian forward Leke James is Molde’s leading scorer this season – by some distance – but the Nigerian had to settle for a spot on the bench in the reverse fixture in London.

Molde will once again be without right-back Kristoffer Haraldseid who has a long-term knee injury.

Manchester United academy graduate Magnus Eikrem will captain the side. Eikrem failed to make a senior appearance for the Red Devils, but did have a brief spell with Cardiff City in 2014.

Arsenal team news vs Molde

Nicolas Pepe was sent off against Leeds for head-butting – or at least moving his head towards – Ezgjan Alioski and will miss Arsenal’s next 3 domestic games. Mikel Arteta was highly critical of the Ivorian after the match but that doesn’t mean he won’t be selected on Thursday night.

Bukayo Saka was forced off with a knee injury at the weekend. Willian was also substituted off at halftime as a precaution after “feeling something muscular”. Both players are major doubts for Thursday.

Thomas Partey missed out against Leeds with a thigh strain and is unlikely to be risked against Molde.

Mohamed Elneny also missed Sunday’s game after testing positive for Covid-19 while on international duty with Egypt. Sead Kolasinac also tested positive and is unavailable.

Shkodran Mustafi, Alex Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah were unused substitutes at the weekend and will be looking for some game time.

Calum Chambers featured for the under-23s last week as he works his way back from a lengthy knee injury. Emile Smith Rowe could be given a rare first-team opportunity after impressive for the under-23s.

Youngsters Miguel Azeez, Ben Cottrell, and Folarin Balogun have also been included in Arsenal’s travelling party to Norway.

Pablo Mari has returned to training following a knee injury and is aiming to be match-fit in December.

Gabriel Martinelli remains sidelined with a serious knee injury, while Mesut Ozil, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, and William Saliba have been left out of the Gunners’ Europa League squad.
