Fixture: Bournemouth vs Arsenal
Competition: Premier League
Kick-off: 19:45 (UK time)
Arsenal have officially named their starting line-up and substitutes to play Bournemouth at Dean Court in a Premier League fixture this evening.
Arsene Wenger's men head into the game sitting in fourth spot in the Premier League standings, but taking all three points tonight would push the Gunners above Manchester City and into third spot, just one point off second placed Liverpool.
Bournemouth went down to defeat against Southampton in their last home match, but having stunned Liverpool recently and held Tottenham Hotspur to a draw at Dean Court, the Cherries pose a threat to Arsenal. To get the job done, Wenger picks Olivier Giroud up top, with Alexis Sanchez, Alex Iwobi and Aaron Ramsey all tucked in behind, while Francis Coquelin and Granit Xhaka boss midfield. Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny are the central defensive pairing.
On the bench, Wenger can call for Lucas Perez if he needs to bring on another striker, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is another attack minded option.

Cech, Bellerin, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Coquelin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Iwobi, Sanchez, Giroud
Substitutes: Ospina, Maitland-Niles, Paulista, Holding, Reine-Adelaide, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Perez
