Barclays Premier League
Kick off: February 21st, 2015 1500 GMT
For this away fixture, manager Arsene Wenger has named a well rounded team that has stability at the back and attacking threat up front.
Wojciech Szczesny is benched today as David Ospina makes an appearance between the sticks; he will have the pair of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny in front of him.
Calum Chambers and Nacho Monreal round off a sturdy back four. The impressive Francis Coquelin will also start as defensive midfielder.
Up front, we have the likes of Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil to create chances and Danny Welbeck, Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez to finish.

Wenger is sticking to the policy of playing two strikers and it seems to be working for us. With Ozil also in form and Sanchez back to full fitness, we could knock a few past Crystal Palace today.
On the bench, we have new man Gabriel Paulista and Kieran Gibbs. They are joined by the likes of Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Tomas Rosicky – all of whom have the potential to be scoring substitutes.
Ospina, Chambers, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Cazorla, Welbeck, Ozil, Alexis, Giroud
