German defender and Gabonese striker are back in Unai Emery’s XI to face Brendan Rodgers’ men
Arsenal manager Unai Emery has welcomed Shkodran Mustafi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang back into his first XI after they missed out in midweek against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Gunners lost 3-1 in a poor display and their Spanish boss has subsequently made three changes with Mesut Ozil out of the matchday squad entirely with a foot injury for the game with Leicester City – which is live on talkSPORT.

Aubameyang, who had a procedure on his sinus, comes in for the German to create an attacking quartet with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Alex Iwobi, and Alexandre Lacazette, meanwhile Mustafi replaces Laurent Koscielny.
The final alteration sees Bosnian left-back Sead Kolasinac swap in for Nacho Monreal as they continue to rotate in the role.
Leicester City, meanwhile, welcome Hamza Choudhury back into their side as he forms a midfield trio with Youri Tielemans and Wilfred Ndidi.
Demarai Gray is the man to drop out of the XI, which could see James Maddison out wide.
