Arsenal will look to bounce back from their FA Cup disappointment when they take on Cardiff at the Emirates this evening. 

Unai Emery has recalled Mesut Ozil to the starting eleven with the German playmaker supporting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in attack. Alex Iwobi makes way as does Aaron Ramsey with Matteo Guendouzi recalled.

Mohamed Elneny also makes a rare start in midfield with Granit Xhaka given a rest while Stephan Lichtsteiner starts at right-back in place of Ainsley Maitland-Niles – who’s not named in the matchday squad.

Nacho Monreal starts alongside Shkodran Mustafi in the middle of defence in the absence of Sokratis and Laurent Koscielny with Carl Jenkinson and Dinos Mavropanos named on the bench.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Arsenal

Leno, Lichtsteiner, Mustafi, Monreal, Kolasinac, Guendouzi, Elneny, Torreira, Ozil, Lacazette, Aubameyang.

Subs: Cech, Ramsey, Iwobi, Jenkinson, Mavropanos, Xhaka, Nketiah

Cardiff

Etheridge, Peltier, Ecuele Manga, Bamba, Bennett, Gunnarsson, Paterson, Arter, Ralls, Reid, Niasse.
