Arsenal take on Fulham at the Emirates Stadium this afternoon looking to maintain our 100% record this season.

Mikel Arteta has mixed things up following Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out. Takehiro Tomiyasu is suspended after his ridiculous sending off at Selhurst Park. With Oleksandr Zinchenko still only fit enough for a place on the bench, Jacub Kiwior comes in to make a rare start for Arsenal at left-back.

Gabriel Magalhães remains on the bench amid speculation that he could be heading for Saudi Arabia over the coming days. William Saliba and Ben White keep their places in defence with the Brazilian acting as back-up.

Thomas Partey starts once again in the inverted right-back role while Declan Rice anchors the midfield for Arsenal. Kai Havertz gets another chance to impress while Martin Odegaard skippers the team once again.

Bukayo Saka starts his 83rd consecutive Premier League game for Arsenal and Gabriel Martinelli also keeps his place out wide. However, there is one change in attack as Leandro Trossard comes in for Eddie Nketiah up front.

Gabriel Jesus returns to the squad after making a swift recovery from knee surgery, however, he’s only deemed fit enough for a place on the bench.

Here are the line-ups:


Ramsdale; Partey, White, Saliba, Kiwior; Rice, Odegaard, Havertz; Saka, Trossard, Martinelli.

Subs: Raya, Gabriel, Jesus, Smith Rowe, Nketiah, Jorginho, Vieira, Nelson, Zinchenko


Leno; Tete, Diop, Bassey, Robinson; Lukic, Joao Palhinha, Pereira; Wilson, Jimenez, De Cordova-Reid.

Subs: Rodak, Tosin, Mbabu, Reed, Cairney, Harris, Traore, Muniz, Vinicius
