Fixture: Preston North End vs Arsenal
Competition: FA Cup
Kick-off: 17:30 (UK time)
Arsenal have officially confirmed their starting eleven and substitutes to take on Preston North End at Deepdale in an FA Cup third round tie.
The Gunners are looking to bounce back from dropping points away at Bournemouth in the Premier League earlier this week by returning to winning ways and booking a spot in the fourth round of a competition they won in both 2014 and 2015.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, looking to make no mistake against the Championship side, picks Shkodran Mustafi and Gabriel Paulista as the central defensive pairing, while David Ospina is between the sticks. Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey line up in midfield, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alex Iwobi and Lucas Perez tuck in behind striker Olivier Giroud.
From the bench Wenger can call for Danny Welbeck if needed, while Rob Holding and Carl Jenkinson are defensive options for the Frenchman.
