Koscielny is back in the squad but not in the first team just yet, it is just great to have him back in the squad. He takes his place on the Arsenal bench with forgotten men Tomas Rosicky, Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell. Yaya Sanogo claims his first start since Danny Welbeck signed at the end of the transfer window. Welbeck is not in the squad at all.

I would expect Arsene to keep the same shape as the team that lost on the weekend so I am guessing we'll see Alexis and the Ox as our wide dribllers. Cazorla is likely to play behind the front with Arteta alongside Aaron Ramsey.

With Welbeck and Giroud unavailable for differing reasons, a lot of the pressure will be heaped on the big Frenchmans shoulders. I hope he manages to get a goal, he really needs one in an Arsenal shirt.

Confirmed Line Up:


Subs: Huddart, Koscielny, Bellerin, Rosicky, Flamini, Podolski, Campbell
