Arsenal will look for a win to keep alive our slim hopes of finishing in the top four when we take on Sunderland at the Emirates on Tuesday evening.

Arsene Wenger has named virtually a full strength side with Alexis Sanchez passed fit to start in attack after overcoming a minor thigh injury.

Laurent Koscielny misses out with a calf problem so Nacho Monreal joins Shkodran Mustafi and Rob Holding in defence with Kieran Gibbs coming on on the left.

Aaron Ramsey returns in midfield alongside Granit Xhaka while Olivier Giroud keeps his place up front after scoring twice against Stoke at the weekend. Mesut Ozil starts in attack with the likes of Danny Welbeck, Theo Walcott and Alex Iwobi on the bench.

Here are the line-ups:

Arsenal

Cech, Holding, Mustafi, Monreal; Bellerin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Gibbs; Ozil, Sanchez; Giroud.

Subs: Ospina, Gabriel, Elneny, Coquelin, Iwobi, Walcott, Welbeck

Sunderland

Pickford, Jones, Manquillo, O’Shea, Kone, Oviedo, Ndong, Larsson, Cattermole, Borini, Defoe.

Subs: Mannone, Love, Januzaj, Lescott, Gooch, Gibson, Rodwell
