Mathieu Flamini is set to return from a leg injury he suffered few weeks ago. The Frenchman missed two games for the Gunners.
Spanish left-back Nacho Monreal remains out with his back injury. Kieran Gibbs will again be starting at the left-flank. Francis Coquelin replaced Gibbs against Southampton in a Capital One Cup game few days ago.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that winger Theo Walcott is still out for a match and will return next month. He has been out since January; he picked up a knee injury against Tottenham in a FA Cup game.
While summer signing Mathieu Debuchy and French striker Olivier Giroud are out with long-term problems.
Wenger confirmed that only Mathieu Flamini is the player returning this weekend.
He told club’s official website: “The only difference compared to Villa and Southampton is that Flamini might be available again. He had a dead leg. I feel he should be back.
“Everyone else is similar to where they were. Monreal is not back yet. The likes of Giroud, Debuchy and Walcott are unavailable.”
