With Arsene Wenger declaring this will be his final season at the Emirates, the Gunners will surely want to send him off in style and the recent form of Alexandre Lacazette has been encouraging. We're not going to mix anything up, we'll continue with what we're doing. They've done a brilliant job.

Totti played for Roma against Liverpool at Anfield in the 2001-02 Champions League when they suffered a decisive 2-0 defeat in the second group stage and crashed out of the competition.
