Arsenal will be looking to close the gap on the top two when we entertain Watford at the Emirates this afternoon.
Arsene Wenger has named an unchanged line-up from the side that beat Everton 2-0 before the international break meaning Petr Cech is only deemed fit enough for a place on the bench after recovering from a calf injury.
Therefore, David Ospina keeps his place in goal while Gabriel also retains his starting berth alongside Laurent Koscielny at the back with Per Mertesacker among the substitutes.
Alex Iwobi is once again preferred to Theo Walcott and Joel Campbell in attack while Danny Welbeck starts ahead of Olivier Giroud up front.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Ospina; Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal; Elneny, Coquelin, Ozil, Iwobi, Alexis, Welbeck.
Subs: Cech, Gibbs, Mertesacker, Chambers, Walcott, Giroud, Campbell.
Gomes; Nyom, Prödl, Cathcart, Ake; Capoue, Watson, Suarez; Abdi, Deeney; Ighalo.
Subs: Pantilimon, Britos, Guedioura, Anya, Berghuis, Jurado, Amrabat.
