Yossi Benayoun has been drafted into the Arsenal line-up for today's big game against Manchester City.

The Israel international replaces Aaron Ramsey as Arsène Wenger makes one change from the team that started last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Queens Park Rangers.

Benayoun is likely to start on the left - as he did to great effect in the North London derby in February.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Andre Santos are among the substitutes but Gervinho misses out.

Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Gibbs, Song, Arteta, Rosicky, Benayoun, Walcott, Van Persie; Subs: Fabianski, Djourou, Santos, Jenkinson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Chamakh.
