TEAM NEWS: Alexis starts for Arsenal, Ozil on the bench

The Chilean remains in the Gunners starting line-up despite the doubts over his future, while there is no room for the ex-Real Madrid man

Alexis Sanchez will start for Arsenal in Saturday's FA Cup clash against Lincoln City, while Mesut Ozil is on the bench.

The Chilean forward was left out of Arsene Wenger's first XI in last weekend's 3-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool, but returned to the starting line-up against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

And despite constant rumours about his future at the Emirates Stadium, he keeps his place against the non-league side. 

There is no room for Ozil, however, who was also on the bench for that damaging 5-1 Champions League reverse.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain starts alongside Theo Walcott and Sanchez, the trio charged with supporting lone striker Olivier Giroud.
