LAM) Alexis Sanchez
The Chilean certainly hasn’t been at his best this season, and with Wenger recently admitting he rushed him back too quickly (via The Evening Standard), there is a possibility he will be rested.
Alexis himself may have a problem with that though, and it seems probable that he’ll get the nod to start the game this weekend.

Many Arsenal fans want to see Wenger deploy a more natural wide man on the right, but to the manager’s credit, we have struggled for defensive stability with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain or Joel Campbell deployed on the flank.
Aaron Ramsey could keep his place in midfield, but it seems more likely that he’ll resume his duties on the right.
ST) Theo Walcott
Wenger has opted to rotate between Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott so far this season, and neither have really done enough to show they deserve the regular starting spot. The pacy Englishman has arguably looked the more dangerous of the two though – despite missing a number of gilt-edged chances – and seems could start after being rested midweek.
