The Gunners will welcome back Ainsley Maitland-Niles after he sat out the draw with Brighton through suspension, while Petr Cech will take the place of Bernd Leno in goal, as he has done throughout the Europa League campaign.
Lacazette then spurned a marvellous opportunity to all but put the tie beyond Valencia as he could only turn Aubameyang's pass onto the outside of the post when Arsenal's player of the season should have done so much better. Giving teams a Champions League place through the Europa league is a fair reward.
Speaking at a news conference ahead of the semi-final, Sarri said: "Kante had a problem with his hamstring, not really a very serious one but he needs to rest for a couple of weeks". Over the last seven, eight years he's been fantastic - the trophies he has helped us win. "I think we've learnt from last season and this year we didn't make the same mistakes".
"It's not easy because we have to play a risky team, as we saw in the first leg", Sarri said.
"Every worker in football, every professional, wants to play matches like tomorrow to try to get to a final". The performance we had, six wins and knocked out some Champions League teams and we nearly embarrassed the top team at home, but we have nothing to show for it.
