David Ospina starts in goal for Arsenal with Arsene Wenger choosing to retain the defensive duo of Koscielny and Mustafi at the centre from the weekend. Granit Xhaka starts against his former club with Elneny restricted to the bench.

Wenger has chosen to keep Walcott and Iwobi as the two attackers on either side of Mesut Ozil with Alexis Sanchez again as the lone forward for Arsenal as the Gunners brace for their first home game of the current season in Champions League.

FC Basel, on the other hand, has gone for a 5-man defence with Vaclik entrusted with the position between the posts. But, the headline is the appearance of Xhaka as the stage looks set for a battle between the brothers on the pitch at Emirates.

Doumbia and Steffen are the club’s two forwards who bear the responsibility of taking advantage of any visible lapses in the defence from the Gunners.
