Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny faces a scan on a thigh injury ahead of Monday’s FA Cup fifth-round trip to face non-league Sutton.

The skipper was forced off in Wednesday’s 5-1 Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich and is unlikely to feature at Gander Green Lane, with Lucas Perez (hamstring), Aaron Ramsey (calf) and Santi Cazorla (Achilles) also missing out.

Manager Arsene Wenger has said that he will pick a “normal team” for the tie rather than heavily rotate his starting XI.

Provisional squad: Cech, Ospina, Martinez, Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Gibbs, Maitland-Niles, Coquelin, Xhaka, Elneny, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Walcott, Reine-Adelaide, Iwobi, Perez, Sanchez, Giroud.
