Arsenal v Everton: Mesut Ozil starts as Yaya Sanogo is preferred instead of Olivier Giroud
Arsene Wenger names a strong line-up for the FA Cup sixth round clash while Romelu Lukaku returns for Everton
Yaya Sanogo has been handed another chance to impress as Arsene Wenger named his side to face Everton in the FA Cup sixth round on Saturday, choosing to leave regular striker Olivier Giroud on the bench.
However, Wenger has named a strong XI, with Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all being given the nod. Club captain Thomas Vermaelen comes into the defence to replace Laurent Koscielny, while the Gunners are without midfielder Jack Wilshere due to the broken foot he suffered while on international duty ruling him out for eight weeks.
Everton have also stuck with their big guns, with on-loan striker Romelu Lukaku returning to the starting line-up following his goal-scoring return from injury last time out.
The Toffees are without captain Phil Jagielka through injury, so 19-year-old John Stones continues in defence while Joel Robles starts in goal in place of Tim Howard.
Arsenal: Fabianski, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Flamini, Arteta, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Cazorla, Sanogo.
Subs: Rosicky, Podolski, Giroud, Viviano, Jenkinson, Miyaichi, Gnabry.
Everton: Robles, Coleman, Stones, Distin, Baines, McCarthy, Barry, Mirallas, Barkley, Pienaar, Lukaku.
Subs: Hibbert, McGeady, Deulofeu, Naismith, Osman, Howard, Browning.
Referee: Mark Clattenburg (Tyne & Wear)
