Mikel Arteta has told Arsenal’s official website that Willian has a “good chance” to play in the Europa League tonight.

Willian has come out of the starting contest at Arsenal in recent weeks but has still been taken off the bench fairly regularly.

The Brazilian continues to struggle to make an impact as a substitute, with the criticism that continues to come for his performances.

But Arteta insists that Willian might still have a chance to play, and when asked if he will play Benfica tonight, Arteta said: “Well, he’s part of the team so he has a good chance.”

If Willian starts with Arsenal tonight, it will surely be a controversial pick.

Many Gunners fans were surprised when Willian was the favorite over Gabriel Martinelli from the bench last weekend, when Arsenal beat Leeds United.

Arteta is expected to name a strong team tonight as Arsenal seek a victory in the competition.

The Gunners’ best chance of playing in the Champions League next season may be to win the Europa League, and there is hope that they will be good enough to beat Benfica quite comfortably.
