Arsenal can move up to third in the Premier League table with a win over Crystal Palace at the Emirates this afternoon.
Unai Emery has recalled Shkodran Mustafi in place of Sokratis – who serves the final game of his two-match suspension – while Dinos Mavropanos comes in for Nacho Monreal. Laurent Koscielny keeps his place in the back three.
Petr Cech drops to the bench after keeping a clean sheet during the Europa League win at Napoli on Thursday night with Bernd Leno taking-up his place between the sticks. Carl Jenkinson makes a rare start with Ainsley Maitland-Niles dropping out but Sead Kolasinac keeps his place in the left wing-back role.
Granit Xhaka has been left out of the squad as a precaution due to a knock so Matteo Guendouzi is recalled while Mohamed Elneny comes in for Lucas Torreira. Aaron Ramsey has been ruled out with a hamstring injury that he sustained in midweek so Mesut Ozil is recalled to the attack.
Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang once again lead the line up front with the likes of Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhtaryan having to make-do with places among the substitutes this afternoon.

Leno, Jenkinson, Mustafi, Koscielny, Mavropanos, Kolasinac, Elneny, Guendouzi, Ozil, Lacazette, Aubameyang
