Arsene Wenger has made two changes to the side that beat Everton 2-0.
Per Mertesacker returns to the side to partner Gabriel in defence at the expense of Laurent Koscielny, while Tomas Rosicky replaces Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in midfield.
Elsewhere, Francis Coquelin recovers from a broken nose to start but Nacho Monreal misses out with a slight back strain while Wojciech Szczesny is absent through illness.
