Moreover, Mesut Ozil is has come back from his illness, but his return is unlikely, Theo Walcott (calf) and Lucas Perez (ankle) are both doubts, with Mohamed Elneny (international duty) missing.

Arsene Wenger says he will also rest goalkeeper Petr Cech, defender Laurent Koscielny and forward Alexis Sanchez.

Gunners boss Wenger insists the FA Cup is a “big priority” for Arsenal this season. He also admitted he will only make a couple of changes to his strongest side.

This will be the first FA Cup meeting between the sides since January 1999, when Arsenal triumphed 4-2 at Deepdale in the third round.
