Arsenal boss Unai Emery included Dominic Thompson in first team training today.

The 18-year-old left-back is a regular for Arsenal's Under-18s and could make the bench for tomorrow's fixture at the Emirates Stadium.

Emery is unable to call upon the services of Laurent Koscielny, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Sead Kolasinac and Alex Iwobi due to injuries.

And in June, Thompson was rewarded with his first professional contract.

Florence's death toll climbs to 17
At least 11 people were killed in North Carolina and six others in SC , including a 3-month baby killed by a falling tree. But the number of actual people without power is far greater, since a single customer can represent an entire family.

Arsenal reached the semi-finals of the competition last season before losing to Atletico Madrid, and are the overwhelming favourites to beat a team that finished third in the Ukrainian Premier League last season.

Emile Smith-Rowe, Eddie Nketiah and Julio Pleguezuelo also trained with the first team this afternoon so they could be involved in the squad on Thursday night as Emery looks to make sweeping changes to his team.

Lucas Torreira still hasn't started a game for Arsenal, despite impressing as a substitute, and could win a place in midfield.

That means we should see Petr Cech, Hector Bellerin, Sokratis, Granit Xhaka, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all rested ahead of our Premier League clash with Everton on Sunday.
