Arsenal will look to build on their opening draw at PSG when they take on Basel at the Emirates in the group stages of the Champions League this evening.

Arsene Wenger has made just two changes from the side that beat Chelsea 3-0 on Saturday with David Ospina coming in between the sticks and Petr Cech dropping back to the bench.

Granit Xhaka also gets a recall in midfield as the Swiss international replaces Francis Coquelin – who’s facing three weeks on the sidelines after suffering a knee injury at the weekend.

Alexis Sanchez continues to lead the line up front in the absence of the suspended/injured Olivier Giroud while Santi Cazorla is once again preferred to Mohamed Elneny in the middle of the park.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Arsenal

Ospina, Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Cazorla, Ozil, Iwobi, Walcott, Alexis

Subs: Cech, Gibbs, Gabriel, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Reine-Adelaide, Elneny, Lucas

Basel

Vaclik, Lang, Suchy, Xhaka, Balanta, Traore, Bjarnason, Zuffi, Fransson; Doumbia, Steffen.

Subs: Vailati, Gaber, Sporar, Delgado, Elyounoussi, Hoegh, Calla
