The Gunners will be looking to maintain their push for a place in Europe next season when they make the short trip to face bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Mikel Arteta’s men appeared to be heading for a win over Leicester City in midweek but a late goal from Jamie Vardy, not too long after Eddie Nketiah had been sent off, saw them settle for a draw to the Foxes.
Up next is what will be Arsenal’s first trip to Spurs’ new stadium and in goal should Emi Martinez, who has been in fairly impressive form in the absence of Bernd Leno.
The back three should consist of Shkodran Mustafi, David Luiz and Sead Kolasinac due to the number of injuries and lack of better options available.
In midfield, Soares and Tierney should be the wing-backs to add pace and tenacity when needed while Xhaka and Ceballos have to retain their partnership after the pair’s fine performances in recent games.
In attack, Saka has every right to start after his contributions in the last two games along Aubameyang while Lacazette should profit from the absence of Nketiah by starting.
Mustafi – Luiz – Kolasinac
Soares – Ceballos – Xhaka – Tierney
Aubameyang – Lacazette – Saka
