Alexis Sanchez has passed a late fitness test to take his place in Arsenal's starting XI against Sunderland.
Arsene Wenger has made two changes, with Kieran Gibbs and Aaron Ramsey replacing Francis Coquelin and the injured Laurent Koscielny.
Olivier Giroud again starts up front, with Alexis and Mesut Ozil alongside him as part of a front three.
Gibbs's return means Nacho Monreal moves into the back three, with Gibbs deployed as a left-wing back.
