Confirmed teams: Fulham v Arsenal | Ozil ruled out, Mkhitaryan starts for Gunners

By on October 7, 2018

Arsenal go searching for our ninth consecutive victory in all competitions when we take on Fulham at Craven Cottage this lunchtime.

The boss has recalled a number of first team regulars following Thursday night’s Europa League win over Qarabag with Hector Bellerin coming back in to the defence while Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka line-up in midfield.

Mesut Ozil is ruled out due to a back spasm so Henrikh Mkhitaryan comes in to the attack alongside Alex Iwobi while Alexandre Lacazette leads the line up front with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the bench after illness.

These are the teams for the game:


Bettinelli; Christie, Odoi, Ream, Le Marchand; Seri, Anguissa, Vietto, Schurrle, Sessegnon, Mitrovic

Subs: Rico, Mawson, S.Sessegnon, McDonald, Johansen, Kamara, Ayite


Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Mustafi, Monreal, Torreira, Xhaka, Mkhitaryan, Iwobi, Welbeck, Lacazette

Subs: Martinez, Sokratis, Lichtsteiner, Kolasinac, Guendouzi, Ramsey, Aubameyang
