19 year old Hector Bellerin starts in place of the injured and suspended Mathieu Debuchy. We are back to full strength at the back with Gibbs returning. Mikel Arteta comes into the side in place of Mathieu Flamini and Danny Welbeck continues in attack.

Calum Chambers is fit enough for the bench but he is our only defensive option.

Considering the lack of numbers at the back, I am surprised that Mathieu Flamini is not even on the bench. It is quite an attack heavy bench with Joel Campbell joined by Lukas Podolski and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

It's a very strong side so let us cross fingers and hope the boys produce tonight.
