Arsenal welcome Aston Villa to the Emirates this afternoon for their fourth round FA Cup tie. Manager Arsene Wenger will be hoping the end a poor run after back-to-back defeats to Manchester United and Swansea have left the Gunners five points behind fourth placed Chelsea in the league.

The FA Cup is a realistic opportunity for silverware this season, with both Manchester City and Manchester United already out, so Arsene Wenger will be desperate to be in the draw for the fifth round.

Thierry Henry, Bacary Sagna, and Mikel Arteta all passed late fitness tests but start from the bench, as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Thomas Rosicky and Francia Coquelin all make the starting eleven. Here are the confirmed teams:

Arsenal Team:

Fabianski, Coquelin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Song, Rosicky, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Van Persie, Walcott.

SUBS: Szczesny, Sagna, Arteta, Benayoun, Arshavin, Park, Henry.

Aston Villa Team:

Given, Hutton, Cuellar, Dunne, Warnock, Ireland, Clark, Petrov, Agbonlahor, Keane, Bent.

SUBS: Guzan, Heskey, Bannan, Weimann, Lichaj, Baker, Gardner.

We’ll have video highlights from the game published shortly after the final whistle, so check back later!
