Yaya Sanogo has been handed a shock start in tonight’s Champions League last-16 first leg against Bayern Munich at Emirates Stadium.
The French striker made his full debut in Sunday’s 2-1 victory against Liverpool in the FA Cup, and sufficiently impressed to retain his place for the visit of the European champions.
Elsewhere, Bacary Sagna and Kieran Gibbs return in place of Carl Jenkinson and Nacho Monreal, while Jack Wilshere comes in for the suspended Mikel Arteta.
In the final changes, Santi Cazorla replaces Lukas Podolski on the left flank and Wojciech Szczesny comes in for Lukasz Fabianski.
Team in full: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Flamini, Wilshere, Ozil, Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sanogo
Subs: Fabianski, Monreal, Jenkinson, Rosicky, Gnabry, Podolski, Giroud
Referee: Nicola Rizzoli (ITA)
