Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger names a strong starting lineup for his side's visit to Ludogorets Razgrad in the Champions League.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has selected a strong starting lineup for his side's visit to Ludogorets Razgrad in the Champions League.
It had been reported that Wenger could rest Alexis Sanchez and other first-team regulars for the trip to Bulgaria, but they all feature as the Gunners look for a third successive win in Group A.
Aaron Ramsey makes his first start since recovering from a hamstring injury while Olivier Giroud is given the opportunity to impress in attack.
As expected, David Ospina replaces Petr Cech between the sticks and Carl Jenkinson is handed a start at right-back with Hector Bellerin nursing an injury.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alex Iwobi are two of the players to drop out after Saturday's 4-1 win at Sunderland.
Ludogorets Razgrad: Borjan; Minev, Palomino, Moti, Natanael; Anicet, Dyakov, Cafu, Marcelinho, Wanderson; Keseru
Subs: Stoyanov, Cicinho, Sasha, Quixada, Plastun, Lukoki, Misidjan
Arsenal: Ospina, Jenkinson, Mustafi, Koscielny, Gibbs, Coquelin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Ozil, Alexis, Giroud
Subs: Cech, Gabriel, Holding, Elneny, Maitland-Niles, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Iwobi
