Arsene Wenger has made two changes to his side that were thumped 5-1 at Liverpool on Saturday as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Nacho Monreal drop to the bench in place of Kieran Gibbs and Tomas Rosicky.

Manchester United manager David Moyes, meanwhile, will stick with the front three of Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata that faced Fulham in the 2-2 draw on Sunday. Adnan Januzaj remains on the bench.

Moyes also makes two changes, as Antonio Valencia and Tom Cleverley come in for Ashley Young and Darren Fletcher.

Arsenal starting XI: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Arteta, Wilshere, Rosicky, Ozil, Cazorla, Giroud Substitutes: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Monreal, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Podolski, Sanogo, Bendtner

Manchester United starting XI: De Gea, Rafael, Smalling, Vidic, Evra; Valencia, Cleverley, Carrick, Mata; Rooney, Van Persie Substitutes: Lindegaard, Büttner, Ferdinand, Fellaini, Young, Hernandez, Januzaj

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has, rather unsurprisingly, stuck with the same side that drubbed Arsenal for Wednesday's trip to Fulham.

Rene Meulensteen makes one change from the draw at Old Trafford, with Darren Bent - who scored the last minute equaliser to deny United victory - leading the line in place of Muamer Tankovic.

Fulham starting XI: Stekelenburg, Riether, Heitinga, Burn, Riise, Tunnicliffe, Sidwell, Kvist, Richardson, Holtby, Bent Substitutes: Stockdale, Hangeland, Kasami, Kačaniklić, Duff, Cole, Parker

Liverpool starting XI: Mignolet, Flanagan, Cissokho, Toure, Skrtel, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Coutinho, Suarez, Sturridge Substitutes: Jones, Agger, Kelly, Allen, Moses, Teixeira, Aspas
