Arsenal have left underfire full-back Hector Bellerin on the bench for their trip to Middlesbrough.

Bellerin a Barca target for a reason

Olivier Giroud is also recalled, with Theo Walcott joining Bellerin among the substitutes.

Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also included from the start as the Gunners make six changes from their defeat to Crystal Palace last time out.

Middlesbrough: Guzan; Barragan, Ayala, Gibson, Fabio; Clayton, De Roon, Leadbitter; Ramirez, Downing, Negredo.

Arsenal: Cech; Gabriel, Koscielny, Holding; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Xhaka, Monreal; Ozil, Alexis; Giroud.
