Arsène Wenger makes seven changes from the side that drew with Leyton Orient for tonight’s Premier League game against Stoke.

Robin van Persie misses out with a hamstring injury so Nicklas Bendtner will make his first League start since December 29.

Samir Nasri, Theo Walcott, Cesc Fabregas and Jack Wilshere all return to the midfield.

Johan Djourou replaces Ignasi Miquel at centre half and Wojciech Szczesny starts in goal.

Abou Diaby completes his suspension.

Team in full: Szczesny, Sagna, Djourou, Squillaci, Clichy, Song, Wilshere, Nasri, Fabregas, Walcott, Bendtner

Subs: Almunia, Rosicky, Denilson, Arshavin, Eboue, Gibbs, Chamakh
