Arsenal team to play Bayern Munich

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger makes two changes to the side that beat Hull City last weekend for tonight’s clash with Bayern Munich.

As Wenger told his press conference yesterday, David Ospina replaces Petr Cech in goal (as he has done for all six Champions League games so far this season).

The other change sees Granit Xhaka – suspended for recent domestic games – replace Theo Walcott.

Kieran Gibbs is again preferred to Nacho Monreal at left-back.

Starting XI: Ospina; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Gibbs; Xhaka, Coquelin; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Iwobi; Sanchez
