Robin van Persie will lead the line for Arsenal against Aston Villa in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday.

The striker was rested for Marouane Chamakh in the third-round victory over Leeds, but returns to face Alex McLeish's side at Emirates Stadium.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain continues on the wing after his promising outing against Manchester United last weekend, while Francis Coquelin is named at right back after his recovery from a hamstring injury.

Lukasz Fabianski starts in goal and Tomas Rosicky is named in midfield.

Bacary Sagna returns to the squad for the first time since suffering a fractured fibula against Tottenham at the beginning of October, while Mikel Arteta and Thierry Henry are also named among the substitutes after their recent injuries.

Team in full:
Fabianski, Coquelin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Song, Ramsey, Rosicky, Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Van Persie.

Substitutes: Szczesny, Sagna, Arteta, Benayoun, Arshavin, Park, Henry.
