Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been handed his Champions League debut.

The teenager, so impressive in Arsenal's Carling Cup win over Shrewsbury last week, lines up against Olympiacos at Emirates Stadium tonight.

However captain Robin van Persie has been rested - he starts on the bench alongside Aaron Ramsey and Kieran Gibbs.

Marouane Chamakh, Emmanuel Frimpong and Andre Santos also start in a much-changed Arsenal line-up.

Arsenal team: Szczesny, Sagna, Song, Mertesacker, Santos, Frimpong, Arteta, Rosicky, Arshavin, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chamakh. Subs: Fabianski, Park, Van Persie, Ramsey, Jenkinson, Gibbs, Coquelin
