The big news is that Laurent Koscielny returns from injury in time to start for the Gunners. He plays alongside Rob Holding and Gabriel Paulista in defence with Petr Cech remaining in goals.
Gabriel starting frees up Nacho Monreal to move back onto the left with Hector Bellerin starting opposite. Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey remain in the middle.
There is a change up front as well with Danny Welbeck replacing Olivier Giroud up top. Mesut Özil and Alexis Sanchez will support the Englishman.
