Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud both start as Arsenal welcome non-league Lincoln City in the FA Cup.

Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud both start as Arsenal welcome non-league Lincoln City in the FA Cup this evening.

Arsene Wenger makes two changes from the side that were humiliated in the Champions League on Tuesday with an aggregate 10-2 defeat to Bayern Munich, with Kieran Gibbs coming in for Nacho Monreal at left-back.

Giroud starts up front with support from Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott, while Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka operate at defensive mid.

Gibbs is joined in the back four by Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny, while between the sticks, Petr Cech comes in for David Ospina, who is out with a groin injury.

Mesut Ozil overcomes a late fitness test to start on the bench, where he is joined by Alex Iwobi, Francis Coquelin and Lucas Perez.

For the visitors, manager Danny Cowley makes four changes from the side that claimed a 4-0 victory at Braintree Town in the National League on Tuesday night.

Lee Angol, who grabbed a hat-trick in midweek, and Josh Ginnelly are both cup-tied and are consequently absent from the matchday squad, while Jonny Margetts drops to the bench and Elliott Whitehouse misses the trip to London.

Nathan Arnold comes into the side having also scored in midweek, with Jack Muldoon, Alan Power and Matt Rhead also earning starting berths.

Arsenal: Cech; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Gibbs; Ramsey, Xhaka; Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sanchez; Giroud
Subs: Martinez, Gabriel, Monreal, Coquelin, Iwobi, Ozil, Lucas

Lincoln City: Farman; Wood, Waterfall, Raggett, Habergham; Arnold, Woodyard, Power, Hawkridge; Muldoon, Rhead
Subs: Marriott, Margetts, McMenemy, McCombe, Calder, Ward, Etheridge
