The Gunners have brought in Kieran Gibbs, Mohamed Elneny and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for the three players and aside from that, it’s the regular eleven. Alex Iwobi and Alexis Sanchez have fended off Olivier Giroud from the starting lineup while Aaron Ramsey will also have to settle for a place on the Arsenal bench.
For the home side, the lineup is pretty much as expected. However, Sunderland will be boosted by the return of Adnan Januzaj who starts from the bench.
