Arsenal will face an FA Cup home quarter final against Everton if they can beat Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium today.

The Gunners made seven changes for the fifth-round visit of the Reds, with Yaya Sanogo making his first start for the Gunners.

Arsenal: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Flamini, Arteta, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Podolski, Sanogo.

Subs: Sagna, Wilshere, Giroud, Viviano, Cazorla, Gibbs, Gnabry.

Liverpool: Brad Jones, Flanagan, Agger, Skrtel, Cissokho, Coutinho, Gerrard, Allen, Sterling, Suarez, Sturridge.

Subs: Toure, Aspas, Moses, Henderson, Mignolet, Kelly, Teixeira.

Referee: Howard Webb (S Yorkshire)
