Theo Walcott returns as Arsene Wenger makes five changes to his team for the north London derby.
Petr Cech starts in goal, Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal are restored to the full-back positions and Alex Iwobi is also recalled.
Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny continue their defensive partnership, while the midfield pairing of Francis Coquelin and Granit Xhaka is unchanged.
Walcott lines up on the right, with Iwobi on the left and Mesut Ozil behind Alexis. But Santi Cazorla misses out through injury.
Arsenal team: Cech, Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Xhaka, Walcott, Ozil, Iwobi, Alexis
Arsenal substitutes: Ospina, Gabriel, Gibbs, Elneny, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Giroud
