Aston Villa come to the Emirates. Here are the lineups:

Arsenal: Wojciech Szczesny, Carl Jenkinson, Per Mertesacker, Thomas Vermaelen, Nacho Monreal, Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla, Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud, Abou Diaby

Subs: Laurent Koscielny, Tomas Rosicky, Lukas Podolski, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey, Vito Mannone, Gervinho

Aston Villa: Brad Guzan, Matthew Lowton, Ciaran Clark, Nathan Baker, Joe Bennett, Ashley Westwood, Fabian Delph, Gabby Agbonlahor, Andreas Weimann, Charles N'Zogbia, Christian Benteke

Subs: Andy Marshall, Karim El Ahmadi, Brett Holman, Yacouba Sylla, Jordan Bowery, Simon Dawkins, Eric Lichaj

So it looks like Vito Mannone is healthy on the subs bench, but otherwise, the Arsenal lineup is pretty straightforward. Except, wait...Santi Cazorla on the left? Interesting...interesting.

Feel free to comment on all the action below. Remember: always use a subject line, no links to illegal streams, and above all else, be kind to each other.

Enjoy the match!
