AMC) Santi Cazorla
In Mesut Ozil’s absence, Cazorla will be the player given the most creative licence. He prefers to play as a no.10 anyway, and will hope to pull the strings this evening.
AML) Lukas Podolski
Podolski provides a genuine goalscoring option from the left for the Gunners. With Olivier Giroud misfiring, they could need him at their best tonight.
FC) Olivier Giroud
The Frenchman didn’t get a sniff at the weekend, but with Nicklas Bendtner injured, and Yaya Sanogo regarded as too raw, he’ll almost definitely lead the line once more.
