DM) Francis Coquelin
He may not have started against Palace but we expect a return for Francis Coquelin this evening. The Frenchman was replaced by Mohamed Elneny but the Frenchman’s defensive abilities could be called upon tonight.
CM) Granit Xhaka
The Swiss midfielder is now a staple in the Arsenal midfield and we expect that to continue. Granit Xhaka put in another solid performance against Palace and will be hoping for another.
CAM) Alexis Sanchez
- Wenger Will Let Alexis Sanchez Leave For Free Next Summer
- Wenger Says Oxlade-Chamberlain Will Definitely Stay At Arsenal
- [Team News] Stoke City v Arsenal – Blow As Alexis Sanchez Still Unfit
We expect Alexis Sanchez to remain as a supporting player this evening. With Mesut Özil set to miss the match with illness, the Chilean could be deployed in a deeper role.
