Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Kick-Off (GMT): Sat 11 Feb 12:30
The biggest shock from the back five is the decision to drop Nacho Monreal. Kieran Gibbs takes the Spaniard’s place at left-back alongside an unchanged back four of Shkodran Mustafi, Laurent Koscielny and Hector Bellerin. Petr Cech keeps his place in goals despite rumours that he would be dropped.
In midfield, Wenger persists with the pairing which looked shaky at Stamford Bridge. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain keeps his place in the centre alongside Francis Coquelin. Mesut Özil plays further forward.
The front three is also unchanged. Theo Walcott and Alex Iwobi play either side of Alexis Sanchez up front.
There is a place on the bench for Mohamed Elneny who has just returned from the African Cup of Nations.
Subs: Ospina, Monreal, Gabriel, Elneny, Lucas, Welbeck, Giroud
Hull City Lineup:
Subs: Marshall, Meyler, Maloney, Diomande, Elmohamady, Tymon, Evandro
