Granit Xhaka is expected to miss the FA Cup third-round tie at Nottingham Forest as a precaution.
Following a busy festive programme, and Arsène Wenger’s well publicised musings concerning fixture congestion, the Arsenal boss plans to make changes with one eye on the Carabao Cup semi-final at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. "I will rotate a little bit because we have also come out of a very high-loaded period. We played three big games in six days and twice we were away, followed by a big game at home." None of those players currently sidelined will be considered – Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac [both ankle], Olivier Giroud, Aaron Ramsey [both hamstring] are ruled out while Laurent Koscielny is absent due to a persistent Achilles problem. The Gunners could also be without Swiss international Xhaka who was complaining of a tight groin following the 2-2 draw against Chelsea. Walcott, linked with a January move to Southampton will feature, as should the likes of Coquelin and Elneny who have struggled to nail down regular minutes in recent weeks. Jan 5 - 7:10 AM
