Team News: Arsene Wenger makes three changes to Arsenal side

Laurent Koscielny returns from suspension to give Arsenal a boost for Sunday's North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsene Wenger has made three changes to his Arsenal side for the visit of rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.

Laurent Koscielny, who was sent off in the Premier League opener, returns to the starting lineup after serving his suspension.

Kieran Gibbs is named ahead of Nacho Monreal at left-back and Tomas Rosicky replaces the injured Lukas Podolski.

Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas has the luxury of recalling seven players following their Europa League win over Dinamo Tblisi, with Roberto Soldado, Paulinho and Michael Dawson all starting.

Record signing Erik Lamela is named on the bench just a few days after his move from Roma was completed.

Arsenal: Szczesny; Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs; Ramsey, Wilshere, Rosicky, Cazorla; Walcott, Giroud

Spurs: Lloris; Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Rose; Capoue, Paulinho; Townsend, Dembele, Chadli; Soldado
