Arsene Wenger has made two changes to Arsenal's starting XI to face Stoke City on Saturday in the Premier League encounter at the bet365 Stadium.

Wenger's men welcome back Aaron Ramsey and Shkodran Mustafi into the team for Mohamed Elneny and Rob Holding, with the latter not in the squad.

The Gunners edged a thrilling 4-3 victory over Leicester City on the opening eve of the Premier League season thanks to a late headed winner from Olivier Giroud.

Alexandre Lacazette, who scored a couple of minutes into his Premier League debut, starts in attack with Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil but match-winner Giroud only makes the bench despite an impressive cameo performance on Friday.

Stoke hand starts to new arrivals Jese Rodriguez and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting while fellow summer signings Darren Fletcher and Kurt Zouma also feature for Mark Hughes' side.

Stoke City XI: Butland; Zouma, Shawcross, Cameron; Diouf, Allen, Fletcher, Pieters; Shaqiri, Jese; Choupo-Moting. Subs: Grant; Johnson, Berahino, Martins-Indi, Crouch, Bojan, Ramadan.

Arsenal XI: Cech, Bellerin, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Monreal, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Xhaka, Ozil, Welbeck, Lacazette. Subs: Ospina, Mertesacker, Coquelin, Elneny, Iwobi, Walcott, Giroud.
