Arsene Wenger could have Olivier Giroud available again after the forward missed Arsenal's previous two matches with a toe injury.
Between his toe injury and returning to fitness after a post-Euro 2016 break, we haven't had much of a chance to understand what Arsene Wenger's plans for Giroud are this season. Alexis Sanchez has been playing regularly as a center forward but it isn't entirely clear the extent to which that is by choice or because Giroud hasn't been ready and Lucas Perez is still adapting to live in the Premier League. Arsenal could certainly use Sanchez playing on the left side of the attack and helping to slow down Eden Hazard on Saturday but if Giroud isn't ready then Sanchez will likely continue at center forward supported by Iwobi, Ozil and Walcott.
