Arsene Wenger will be without Danny Welbeck for the home clash against Aston Villa, with the forward ruled out for around nine months with the serious knee injury he suffered against Man City last weekend.

Mesut Ozil is set to return after missing out with a hip injury last weekend, whilst Alexis Sanchez, Alex Iwobi and Olivier Giroud will be expected to form the rest of the front four; however, Wenger could also chose to slot in Tomas Rosicky in place of Ozil as the midfield maestro comes to the end of his Arsenal career.

Mohamed Elneny and Aaron Ramsey may start at the base of midfield in the 4-2-3-1 formation once again, although Francis Coquelin and Jack Wilshere are also viable options.

Santi Cazorla is likely to be named among the substitutes once again as his return to match fitness continues.

The back four of Hector Bellerin, Gabriel, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal looks set to remain unchanged unless Wenger hands Kieran Gibbs or Calum Chambers a rare opportunity.

Per Mertesacker (hamstring) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee) remain sidelined.
