Arsenal take on Sheffield United at the Emirates this afternoon desperate for a win to help us climb up the table.

Mikel Arteta must make-do without top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang so Gabriel Martinelli comes into the attack alongside Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette with Reiss Nelson ruled out due to a hamstring issue.

Shkodran Mustafi comes into the back four alongside David Luiz as Sokratis is ill. Hector Bellerin is on the bench so Ainsley Maitland-Niles starts at right-back while Bukayo Saka is at left-back with Sead Kolasinac ruled out.

Lucas Torreira is fit to start in midfield along with Granit Xhaka so Matteo Guendouzi, Dani Ceballos and Joe Willock are among the substitutes. Eddie Nketiah is also on the bench.

These are the line-ups:


Leno; Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Luiz, Saka; Torreira, Xhaka; Pepe, Ozil, Martinelli; Lacazette

Subs: Bellerin, Ceballos, Holding, Martinez, Willock, Guendouzi, Nketiah

Sheffield United

Henderson, Baldock, O’Connell, Basham, Egan, Stevens, Fleck, Lundstrum, Norwood, Mousset, McBurnie.

Subs: Jagielka, Besic, Sharp, Verrips, Freeman, Osborn, Robinson
