Arsenal handed huge fitness boost ahead of Champions League tie against PSG

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny is fit to face Paris St Germain in Tuesday's Champions League meeting at the Parc des Princes.

The 31-year-old suffered a facial injury in the Gunners' 2-1 victory over Southampton on Sunday but manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed he has recovered in time to line up against PSG.

Aaron Ramsey (hamstring) remains sidelined and Per Mertesacker, Danny Welbeck and Carl Jenkinson (all knee) are also out, while Granit Xhaka is expected to return having not featured against Saints.

Provisional squad: Cech, Ospina, Debuchy, Bellerin, Holding, Koscielny, Mustafi, Gibbs, Monreal, Coquelin, Elneny, Xhaka, Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Sanchez, Walcott, Iwobi, Lucas, Akpom, Giroud.
