Kieran Gibbs comes in for Nacho Monreal at left back while Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker continue their partnership in central defence.

Former Arsenal captain Robin van Persie starts for Man United.

Arsenal team: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Arteta, Ramsey, Rosicky, Cazorla, Walcott, Podolski. Subs: Vermaelen, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Monreal, Mannone, Jenkinson, Gervinho
