Robin van Persie returns to the starting line-up for Arsenal's vital Champions League clash with Partizan Belgrade tonight.

The Dutch forward captains the side as Arsène Wenger makes three changes from the team that started Saturday's win over Fulham.

Van Persie steps in for Tomas Rosicky, Denilson replaces Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs comes in for Gael Clichy.

Arsenal team: Fabianski, Sagna, Koscielny, Squillaci, Gibbs, Song, Denilson, Nasri, Van Persie, Chamakh, Arshavin. Subs: Szczesny, Rosicky, Vela, Walcott, Wilshere, Eboue, Bendtner
