Arsenal can move five points clear at the top of the Premier League table with a win over Luton Town at Kenilworth Road tonight.

Mikel Arteta has kept faith with David Raya in goal so Aaron Ramsdale remains on the bench. Ben White is recalled to start at right-back with Takehiro Tomiyasu dropping out after picking up a calf problem during Saturday’s win over Wolves.

William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes continue their partnership at the heart of Arsenal’s defence. Jacub Kiwior starts at left-back with Oleksandr Zinchenko making way after a sloppy performances at the weekend.

Declan Rice anchors the midfield once again while Martin Odegaard will be looking to continue his excellent recent form. Kai Havertz comes into the midfield alongside Rice and Odegaard so Leandro Trossard drops out.

Bukayo Saka has been in superb form lately and he’ll be a dangerman for Arsenal again tonight on the right wing. Gabriel Martinelli also starts once again in attack and supports Gabriel Jesus – who keeps his place up front.

These are the teams:


Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Kiwior; Odegaard, Rice, Havertz; Saka, Jesus, Martinelli

Subs: Ramsdale, Nketiah, Soares, Trossard, Jorginho, Nelson, Elneny, Zinchenko, Walters.


Kaminski, Osho, Barkley, Adebayo, Kabore, Mengi, Mpanzu, Brown, Bell, Townsend, Doughty.

Subs: Krul, Ogbene, Berry, Morris, Chong, Clark, Giles, Johnson, Nelson.
