England duo Jack Wilshere (ankle) and Theo Walcott (hip/thigh) are ready to return from their injury lay-offs.
Centre-back Per Mertesacker serves a one-match suspension after his red card at West Brom, so captain Thomas Vermaelen is set to return to the defence. Midfielder Abou Diaby (knee) is a long-term absentee.
