UEFA Champions League
Constant Vanden Stock Stadium
Kick off: October 22nd, 2014 1945 PM BST
Aside from the debut for keeper Emiliano Martinez, the defence sees the pairing of Mertesacker and Monreal as centre backs for the second time this week. The returning Calum Chambers starts as right full back.
Flamini retains his starting place as the holding midfielder; also Ramsey and Wilshere both start. Much has been made of these two players and their chemistry, with many saying that they underperform when played together. Today will be a good chance to see whether it is true. Cazorla also starts, as do Sanchez and Welbeck.
The bench is mostly youth, with the Ox and Podolski providing late attacking options. Arteta is probably still not fully fit.
