Unai Emery’s injury-hit Arsenal welcome Cardiff City to the Emirates this Night.
The Gunners were swept aside by Manchester United as their FA Cup campaign came to a premature end on Friday night with loss 3-1.
Just goal difference separates the two in the league but with just three points separating them from fourth place Chelsea, the battle for Champions League spots is well and truly on.
Meanwhile, Cardiff staff and fans will wear daffodils in honor of missing striker Emiliano Sala.

Neil Warnock admits he must wait to see which Cardiff players are in the right frame of mind to play at Arsenal following the disappearance of Emiliano Sala.
Cardiff chief executive Ken Choo has invited Sala’s family to Tuesday’s match, while both captains will lay floral tributes ahead of kick-off.
There have been 45 meetings between these two sides over the years with the Gunners winning 21 of those.
Cardiff has 10 wins to their name but the last of those came in 1961.
Sokratis and Laurent Koscielny have joined Arsenal’s injury list, leaving Emery desperately short of options at the back.
The Greece international limped off just 21 minutes into Friday’s FA Cup fourth-round defeat to United after landing awkwardly following an aerial battle with Jesse Lingard.
Emery had hoped the injury was not too serious but Arsenal has now confirmed the former Borussia Dortmund defender is not expected to return to first-team training until the end of next month.
Gunners captain was taken to hospital with a suspected broken jaw but the club is yet to place a timeline on his return.
With Rob Holding sidelined for the remainder of the season.
Emery is left with just two recognized center-halves in his squad in Shkodran Mustafi and 21-year-old Konstantinos Mavropanos.
Nacho Monreal can also offer cover at the back but has been limited to just nine starting appearances in the league this season due to hamstring issues.
Hector Bellerin and Danny Welbeck are long-term absentees but Henrikh Mkhitaryan is available after returning to full training last week.
Arsenal XI: Leno; Mustafi, Lichsteiner, Koscielny, Mavropanos, Kolasinac; Torreira, Guendouzi; Iwobi. Ramsey, Aubameyang; Lacazette
