Laurent Koscielny has been passed fit to face Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The centre back had been a doubt with a knee injury but will line up alongside Thomas Vermaelen at the heart of defence. Kieran Gibbs starts at left back.

Yossi Benayoun will take up a place on the left wing, with Theo Walcott occupying the opposite flank.

Tomas Rosicky wins back his place in midfield after missing the FA Cup defeat to Sunderland.

Team in full:
Szczesny, Sagna, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Gibbs, Song, Arteta, Rosicky, Benayoun, Walcott, Van Persie.

Substitutes: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Miquel, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gervinho, Chamakh, Park.
