Arsenal are at the Vitality Stadium to take on Bournemouth in the fourth round of the FA Cup this evening.

Mikel Arteta has handed Eddie Nketiah a start with the youngster lining-up in attack alongside Gabriel Martinelli and Nicolas Pepe. A;exandre Lacazette is given a well earned rest as he drops to the bench.

Matteo Guendouzi and Joe Willock are recalled alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield with Mesut Ozil and Lucas Torreira named among the substitutes. Dani Ceballos still can’t get a game as he’s on the bench once again.

These are the teams for the game:
