Arsene Wenger has named an unchanged lineup to the one that beat Watford last weekend, with David Ospina the surprise inclusion despite the return of Petr Cech to the bench.
Nacho Monreal, Hector Bellerin, Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel are named in defence, with Francis Coquelin and Mohamed Elneny making up the Gunners central midfield partnership.
Mesut Ozil continues ahead in the No10 role, with rising star Alex Iwobi and Alexis Sanchez selected on either wing with Danny Welbeck spearheading the attack. The likes of Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott are named on the bench, while Aaron Ramsey returns to fitness with Joel campbell missing out all together.
