Arsenal will be looking to secure the win we need to stand any chance of finishing top of our Champions League group when we take on Basel at St. Jakob-Park this evening.

Arsene Wenger has made six changes from the side that beat West Ham with David Ospina coming in for Petr Cech between the sticks while Rob Holding comes in to the defence with Shkodran Mustafi rested.

Kieran Gibbs also gets a run-out at left-back and Aaron Ramsey lines-up alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield with Alex Iwobi coming in to the attack. Lucas Perez is also given a chance to impress but Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil keep their places.
