The rotated Arsenal XI that will beat Preston in the FA Cup
Arsenal will be looking to advance to the fourth round of the FA Cup when they face Championship side Preston North End at Deepdale on Saturday evening.
Gunners come into the fixture on the back of an equally disappointing and morale-boosting result against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday night, in which they came from 3-0 down to salvage a 3-3 draw against the 10-man Cherries.
Goals from Alexis Sanchez, Lucas Perez and Olivier Giroud saw the north London snatch a point, but manager Arsene Wenger will be demanding more from his team as they make the long trip to Lancashire.
With a number of injuries and illness within his squad, the French manager could be forced to make a number of changes to his starting XI at Deepdale, to face a Preston side who are just six points outside of the play-off positions in England’s second tier following their 1-0 win against Burton Albion on Monday.
