Arsenal will be desperate to maintain their 100 percent record this season when they take on Fulham at the Emirates Stadium this evening.

Unfortunately, Thomas Partey is ruled out of the game with a thigh injury so Mikel Arteta has to make a change from the side that’s served him well so far this season. Mohamed Elneny comes in to make his first start of the season alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield.

Oleksandr Zinchenko is also ruled out with a knee injury so Kieran Tierney comes in at left-back. Gabriel starts once again while William Saliba is rewarded for his excellent recent form with another start alongside the Brazilian.

Aaron Ramsdale continues between the sticks and he’ll be hoping to secure another clean sheet. Ben White continues at right-back with Takehiro Tomiyasu having to settle for a place on the bench once again.

Bukayo Saka continues on the right flank for the Gunners while Gabriel Martinelli will be looking to keep up his terrific form today. Gabriel Jesus has been a revelation since joining Arsenal in the summer and he’ll be out to impress again up front against Fulham.

Emile Smith Rowe is among the substitutes along with Eddie Nketiah while youngster Marquinhos is also in the squad today.

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno starts for Fulham so hopefully he gets a nice reception from the Emirates crowd.

These are the teams for the game:


Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney, Elneny, Xhaka, Odegaard, Saka, Martinelli, Jesus.

Subs: Turner, Smith Rowe, Nketiah, Holding, Cedric, Tomiyasu, Vieira, Lokonga, Marquinhos.


Leno, Tete, Tosin, Ream, Robinson, Palhinha, Reed, Reid, Pereira, Kebano, Mitrovic

Subs: Rodak, Mbabu, Duffy, Diop, Chalobah, Cairney, Francois, Harris, Stansfield
