Arsene Wenger has made a couple of changes to the side which beat Hull City at the weekend. David Ospina returns in goals as expected and plays behind an unchanged back four. Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny all start as expected but, rather surprisingly, Kieran Gibbs plays ahead of Nacho Monreal.
Granit Xhaka returns to the Arsenal midfield after his suspension and plays alongside Francis Coquelin. Mesut Özil starts in attacking midfield contrary to early reports.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is moved to the right wing with Theo Walcott dropping to the bench. Alex Iwobi keeps his place on the left with Alexis Sanchez starting up front.
