Mesut Ozil is back in the Arsenal side as they take on Huddersfield at the Emirates Stadium.

The German missed the win at Burnley on Saturday through illness but is fully fit. He replaces Alex Iwobi, who suffered a dead leg at Turf Moor but is fit enough for a place on the bench.

The Gunners are otherwise unchanged, with Ozil and Alexis Sanchez supporting Alexandre Lacazette in attack.

Huddersfield, though, have made six changes following their defeat by Manchester City at the weekend.

Rajiv van La Parra begins a three-match ban following his red card in that match.

Elias Kachunga, Martin Cranie, Chris Lowe, Collin Quaner, Steve Mounie and Florent Hadergjonaj all come in.

Kasey Palmer and Phillip Billing (ankle), Michael Hefele (Achilles) and Jon Gorenc Stankovic (knee) remain sidelined.

Arsenal: Cech; Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal; Bellerin, Ramsey, Xhaka, Kolasinac; Ozil, Lacazette, Sanchez.
Subs: Ospina, Mertesacker, Coquelin, Wilshere, Iwobi, Welbeck, Giroud.

Huddersfield: Lossl; Schindler, Jorgensen, Cranie; Hadergjonaj, Mooy, Hogg, Lowe; Kachunga, Quaner, Mounie.
Subs: Green, Malone, Smith, Whitehead, Williams, Ince, Depoitre.
