Arsenal will play their first game in this season's FA Cup third round fixture against Preston North End later today and as the clock ticks towards kick-off, we would like to take a look at the possible lineup for the encounter.

It is now normal to see Arsene Wenger rest many first team players when it comes to local cup games but at his press conference on Thursday, the Frenchman promised to involve about 90% of the players this time around.

He ruled out a number of players who are currently out injured while also stating his plans to rest the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Petr Cech and Laurent Koscielny.

Coquelin is definitely out while Lucas Perez was struggling with a little issue he sustained against Bournemouth as at press time on Thursday. Results from late scans will determine his inclusion.

With the above information and others not mentioned here, we can predict Arsenal's lineup against Preston North End as follows.

Possible Lineup
Ospina; Holding, Mustafi, Gabriel, Monreal; Xhaka, Ramsey; Reine-Adelaide, Iwobi, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Perez.

Danny Welbeck has been passed fit by the manager even though he revealed he wants to take things slow, so we do not expect to see him start. We are not ruling out a substitute appearance anyway.

Arsene Wenger has lost just one of his cup ties with lower-league opponents and by this stat, one could easily predict a win for the Gunners. Yes, we expect Preston to put up a tough fight but Arsenal should still win this. My score prediction is 4-1.
