Barclays Premier League
Kick off: January 1st, 2015 1500 GMT
Sweeping changes from the manager in midfield today. We start with the inexperienced duo of Chambers and Coquelin in holding midfield and a front three of the Ox, Cazorla and Rosicky. Sanchez moves up to play as forward. This was expected with Welbeck sidelined and Podolski also injured.
The defence is unchanged and will need to deliver today.
