Setting aside the much-changed side fielded by Arsene Wenger for the Europa League stalemate against Red Star Belgrade, Arsenal make two changes to the side that beat Swansea City last weekend.
Alex Iwobi and Francis Coquelin come into the starting lineup.
They replace Per Mertesacker and Alexandre Lacazette.
Sead Kolasinac drops back to left-back, with Nacho Monreal moving inside to partner Laurent Koscielny at centre-back.
City target Alexis Sanchez is chosen to spearhead the attack, with Lacazette dropping to the bench. Iwobi takes up Sanchez’s former supporting role and, along with Mesut Ozil, will play off the Chilean.
Starting XI: Cech, Bellerin, Monreal, Koscielny, Kolasinac, Coquelin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Ozil, Sanchez, Iwobi
