Arsene Wenger makes six changes from the team that won 4-1 in Basel for today’s match against Stoke City.
It’s a return to the starting XI that won 5-1 at West Ham in our last Premier League outing, with Gabriel continuing at right back.
Petr Cech is back in goal, behind the central defensive partnership of Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny.
Granit Xhaka is paired alongside Francis Coquelin in midfield, with Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in more advanced positions.
As we have become accustomed to, the attack will be led by Alexis.
Arsenal team: Cech, Gabriel, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Xhaka, Walcott, Ozil, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alexis
Arsenal substitutes: Ospina, Bellerin, Gibbs, Elneny, Iwobi, Lucas, Giroud
