Under pressure Arsenal welcome Norwich City to the Emirates Stadium this afternoon for what’s been dubbed a ‘relegation six pointer’.

Mikel Arteta has made sweeping changes from the side that got battered by Manchester City with Aaron Ramsdale coming in to replace Bernd Leno in goal. Takehiro Tomiyasu is also handed his debut for Arsenal as he starts at right-back this afternoon.

Ben White is partnered by Gabriel in the middle of the defence with Kieran Tierney keeping his place on the left. Ainsley Maitland-Niles is given a chance to impress in midfield as Thomas Partey is only deemed fit enough for a place among the subs.

Albert Sambi Lokonga is fit to start while Martin Odegaard starts in the No.10 role with Emile Smith Rowe named on the bench. Nicolas Pepe and Bukayo Saka support Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in attack. Alexandre Lacazette and Gabriel Martinelli are among the Arsenal subs.

These are the line-ups:


Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Lokonga, Maitland-Niles; Pepe, Odegaard, Saka; Aubameyang.

Subs: Leno, Cedric, Tavares, Chambers, Mari, Partey, Smith Rowe, Lacazette, Martinelli.


Krul; Aarons, Hanley, Omobamidele, Williams; Melou, McLean; Rupp, Dowell, Tzolis; Pukki

Subs: Gunn, Gibson, Gilmour, Cantwell, Kabak, Normann, Rashica, Sorensen, Idah
