Arsene Wenger will be pleased to have his star man back in the fold…
Arsenal play against Leicester City at the Emirates on Tuesday evening.
Alexis Sanchez should return for the Gunners, and there could be an opportunity for new signing Gabriel Paulista to make his debut.
GK) David Ospina
The Columbian has looked solid since coming in for the out of favour Wojciech Szczesny. He should continue in his place.
RB) Hector Bellerin
Scored his first goal and impressed against Manchester City before the devastating derby loss. Will be interesting to see how he responds.
LB) Nacho Monreal
Although Kieran Gibbs has returned to fitness, his replacement has done enough to continue in the starting XI.
CB) Laurent Koscielny
The 29-year-old is a definite member of the team when fit.
CB) Per Mertesacker
Gabriel Paulista will have to wait to make his debut ahead of the towering World Cup winner.
