Barclays Premier League
Kick off: January 11th, 2015 1330 GMT
Today’s match against Stoke is widely viewed as a must win game, especially after the 3-2 loss we suffered recently at the Britannia. With that in mind, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has named a strong starting lineup.
Ospina retains his starting spot between the sticks, with Szczesny on the bench. The defence remains unchanged apart from Gibbs, who has been replaced by Monreal. In midfield, we have Le Coq, Ox, Rosicky, Cazorla and Sanchez. Giroud returns from suspension to lead the line.
The bench is also strong, with the likes of Ramsey, Ozil and Walcott available to the manager.
