The team line up has been submitted and the team is largely as we expected it would be given our injury list currently. Monreal has been passed fit which is super duper news. Missing a left back would have meant a whole load of pegs in various shaped holes.
Arsene Wenger has made one big call and that is to rest Giroud in place of Oxlade-Chamberlain. I am a tad surprised that Alexis starts another game but I guess that is what happens when you are a key player. I suppose after a long injury it makes sense not to over run Giroud so soon.
That aside, we have the same looking side that faced West Brom over the weekend. Kieran Gibbs also makes the bench which is good news after his injury. I thought at least one of those knocks would have been bad but we seem to have avoided one this time.
Confirmed Line Up:
Subs: Macey, Gibbs, Bellerin, Rosicky, Podolski, Sanogo, Giroud
