TEAM NEWS: Alexis benched and no Ozil as Walcott starts in attack for Arsenal

Walcott starts in a central role upfront as Lucas Perez makes his return to the Arsenal line-up following injury

Theo Walcott starts through the middle for Arsenal in their FA Cup tie with Sutton United, with Alexis Sanchez benched and Mesut Ozil left out completely.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has selected a strong line-up for the fourth-round clash at Gander Green Lane, with the likes of Lucas Perez, Granit Xhaka and Nacho Monreal also featuring.

Shkodran Mustafi partners Rob Holding in central defence while 19-year-old Jeff Reine-Adelaide starts in the No.10 role behind Walcott.

Wenger's side will be hopeful of securing a place in the quarter-finals against another non-league side in Lincoln City, the team who shocked Burnley at the weekend.
