Mikel Arteta is expected to make a host of changes to Arsenal side as the Gunners begin their FA Cup campaign at home to Leeds.

He’ll be without Calum Chambers, who is not sidelined for the rest of the season after needing surgery on his knee injury.

Gabriel Martinelli and Hector Bellerin have been nursing hamstring problems and will both be assessed.

The FA Cup is a competition that has been kind to Arsenal in recent years. Arsene Wenger took home three FA Cup winners medals in his final four years at the Emirates to become the competition’s most successful manager (7 wins).

Arsenal’s new head coach Mikel Arteta was Gunners’ captain when they won the 2014 FA Cup final

The Championship side represent tough opposition. Marcelo Bielsa has the Yorkshire club firing as they sit pretty at the top of the table and finally on course for a return to the Premier League.

Bielsa has confirmed Robbie Gotts and goalkeeper Illan Meslier will make their debuts, with Gaetano Berardi and Barry Douglas also starting.

Kick off: 19:56
