Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been named on the bench as Arsenal take on Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium this evening.

Wenger has made two changes from the side that beat Chelsea in the cup  last week with Cech replacing Ospina in goal while Ramsey comes in for Wilshere [ill] in midfield.

Interestingly, Giroud is named on the bench despite widespread reports today claiming he’s joining Chelsea in an £18m deal.

Here are the line-ups:


Fabianski, Naughton, Van der Hoorn, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson, Dyer, Fer, Ki, Clucas, Ayew.

Subs: Nordfelt, Batley, Carroll, Routledge, Narsingh, Bony, Abraham.


Cech, Koscielny, Elneny, Mustafi, Bellerin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Monreal, Iwobi, Ozil, Lacazette.

Subs: Ospina, Chambers, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Mkhitaryan, Nketiah, Giroud
