Arsenal could make three changes to their starting line-up as they welcome Paris Saint-Germain to the Emirates on Wednesday night for a crucial Champions League clash.
Arsene Wenger’s side drew their last encounter 1-1 with striker Olivier Giroud coming off the substitutes bench to head home a late equaliser against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The France international could now start in three possible changes by manager Wenger as Granit Xhaka and David Ospina may also come into the side.
It means Aaron Ramsey, Mohamed Elneny and Petr Cech could miss out for the Group A clash.
The north London club top their group with ten points from four games, level on points with PSG and they could all but secure top spot with a victory against the Ligue 1 champions.
Wenger could keep the same back four that started against United, but goalkeeper Ospina, who has started all the Champions League fixtures this term, is likely to replace Cech.
After a lacklustre display at the weekend, Wenger may decide to add more creativity to his midfield by bringing in Xhaka for the more defensive-minded Elneny.
Mesut Ozil, who scored a stunning late goal against Ludogorets in their last Champions League game, could start in his usual number ten role.
Additionally, striker Giroud is likely to start up front after his heroics against United with Ramsey missing out.
It means Alexis Sanchez may revert to a wide role despite being utilised as a forward for the majority of this campaign.
The Gunners drew 1-1 with PSG during the reverse fixture in September which saw Giroud being sent off in his home country.
In other Arsenal team news, supporters on Twitter expressed their excitement as Hector Bellerin signed a new deal with the club.
