Arsenal Team News:

Arsene Wenger has major selection issues in attack as Alexandre Lacazette remains injured and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ineligible for the clash.

With the departures of Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez over the January transfer window, Danny Welbeck may be called upon to lead the attacking line.

Meanwhile, Wenger will be sweating over the fitness of Nacho Monreal, who remains a doubt after picking up a back injury late last month.
