Theo Walcott returns to the starting line-up for the visit of Bolton Wanderers to Emirates Stadium.

The England international had started the Gunners' previous Premier League fixture against Blackburn on the bench but returns to the side to form a three-pronged attack alongside Gervinho and captain Robin van Persie.

Meanwhile Kieran Gibbs gets the nod at left-back following his first goal for the Club against Shrewsbury, with Andre Santos among the substitutes.

Alex Song will once more anchor the midfield with Aaron Ramsey and summer signing Mikel Arteta in midfield.

Team in full: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Song, Arteta, Ramsey, Gervinho, Walcott, Van Persie (c).

Substitutes: Fabianski, Andre Santos, Frimpong, Rosicky, Arshavin, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chamakh.
