Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Wojciech Szczesny; Carl Jenkinson, Thomas Vermaelen, Per Mertesacker, Kieran Gibbs; Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere; Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla, Lukas Podolski; Gervinho.

Swansea City (4-4-1-1): Gerhard Tremmel; Angel Rangel, Ashley Williams (c), Chico Flores, Ben Davies; Leon Britton, Jonathan de Guzman, Ki Sung-Yeung, Lloyd Dyer; Michu; Itay Shechter.

Olivier Giroud surprisingly starts on the bench as Arsene Wenger controversially selects Gervinho up front for Arsenal. Lukas Podolski is fit to start, while Theo Walcott also passed a late fitness test. Carl Jenkinson and Kieran Gibbs start at full-back, with Vermaelen and Mertesacker the centre-back pairing.

Gerhard Tremmell continues in goal for Swansea as Michel Vorm continues his recuperation, while Chico Flores returns to the side and Jonathan de Guzman takes the place of the injured Pablo Hernandez. Itay Shechter starts up front in place of the injured Danny Graham with Michu in behind, and young defender Ben Davies continues at left-back.
