Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has taken the surprise step of naming his team to face Galatasaray in the Champions League this evening well before the game.
Usually teams reveal their line-ups an hour before Kick-Off, but Wenger has confirmed that Mathieu Debuchy will make his return from injury while Yaya Sanogo will lead the line.
Arsenal seem set to bag second place in their group behind Borussia Dortmund, but if the Germans slip up they could still finish first. The team to take on the Turkish giants is as follows: Szczesny; Debuchy, Mertesacker, Chambers, Bellerin; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Flamini, Ramsey; Campbell, Sanogo, Podolski.
The Arsenal boss has very little to call on in terms of experience from the bench, with Chuba Akpom, Gedion Zelalem, Glen Kamara, Stefan O'Connor, Alex Iwobi, and Ainsley Maitland-Niles his replacements.
FA Cup draw
Next and Hull will have the chance to gain revenge on the Gunners for their defeat in the FA Cup final last year after the two were thrown together in the third round of the same competition last night.

The Gunners fought back from 2-0 down in the final back in May to claim their first trophy in nine years, and Steve Bruce’s side will be out for revenge.
Cavani keen on move
Edison Cavani is said to be keen on a move to London, with Arsenal said to be in the running. Chelsea have also been linked, as have Manchester United in the past.
It has also been claimed that Cavani has urged his club to lower their £50 million in order to make the deal more plausible, although the French giants are unlikely to take a big hit on one of their star assets.
Cavani has played second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic during his career at the Parc des Prince but appears to be coming good. He's got seven goals in 16 league appearances, while he has bagged five in five in the Champions League.
