Coquelin was reportedly facing a fitness test, after having recovered sooner than expected from a knee injury, but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has ruled him out.

“He is looking much better but he will still not be ready,” said the Frenchman.

“The ligament is not as damaged as we thought but we have to be careful.”

Giroud (toe) is still out, while Aaron Ramsey (hamstring), Per Mertesacker, Danny Welbeck and Carl Jenkinson (all knee) are also absent.

Provisional squad: Cech, Ospina, Debuchy, Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Koscielny, Mustafi, Gibbs, Monreal, Elneny, Xhaka, Coquelin, Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Sanchez, Walcott, Iwobi, Lucas, Akpom.
