An incredible three key players have been dropped for the clash with PSG. Arsene Wenger has left out Petr Cech, Nacho Monreal and Theo Walcott for the crucial clash, as well as giving a start to Olivier Giroud. There is even a place in the centre of midfield for Aaron Ramsey as Wenger rings the changes.

Match: Arsenal v Paris Saint Germain
Stadium: The Emirates Stadium
Kick-Off (GMT): Wed 23 Nov 19:45
David Ospina continues in goal for the Gunners and plays behind a back four of Carl Jenkinson, Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi and Kieran Gibbs. The latter has taken the left-back slot away from Nacho Monreal in a shock decision.
In midfield, Francis Coquelin keeps his place and is partnered by Aaron Ramsey. The Welshman gets a rare start with Mohamed Elneny joining Granit Xhaka on the bench.
Mesut Özil will play in attacking midfield in between Alex Iwobi and Alexis Sanchez. Olivier Giroud will start up front after his heroics at the weekend. Theo Walcott has dropped to the bench and it seems that Alexis Sanchez will play from the right-hand side.
