Arsenal resume Premier League duties this weekend with a trip to Manchester to take on old rival Manchester United.
Gabriel (hamstring) requires a late fitness test ahead of the trip to Old Trafford. Should he be ruled out, Per Mertesacker will start next to Laurent Koscielny in central defence, with Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal likely to complete the back four.
Francis Coquelin and Aaron Ramsey are the expected pairing at the base of midfield in the 4-2-3-1 formation, with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil looking sure starters in the advanced positions.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been ruled out for a number of weeks with a knee injury sustained in midweek – his absence will see Theo Walcott and Joel Campbell battle it out for the starting spot on the right, although Danny Welbeck could also come into consideration.
The former Man United striker may also challenge Olivier Giroud’s pitch time given the Frenchman’s struggles over the past few weeks. Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla and Tomas Rosicky remain out.
