Aaron Ramsey and Yaya Sanogo have both been included in Arsenal's team for their FA Cup semi-final against Wigan at Wembley.
The Welsh midfielder replaced the suspended Mathieu Flamini in midfield and Sanogo came in for Olivier Giroud up front.
Elsewhere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain passed a late fitness test to make the starting line-up while Kieran Gibbs was only fit enough to make the bench.
With the likes of Tomas Rosicky, Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere all out injured, Arsène Wenger was forced to call up under-21 regulars Chuba Akpom and Thomas Eisfeld.
Team in full: Fabianski, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Monreal, Arteta, Ramsey, Cazorla, Podolski, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sanogo
Subs: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Gibbs, Kallstrom, Eisfeld, Akpom, Giroud
