Arsenal will take on their biggest rival Manchester United at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
The fixture comes at a time when Arsenal sits five points ahead of the Red Devils. This game will likely determine the outcome of the season for both sides.
Arsenal got back to winning ways with a comfortable 2-0 win over Newcastle while Man United under Michael Carrick played a 1-1 draw with Chelsea and have won just once in their last five league games.
The Gunners will be hoping to win back-to-back games at Old Trafford after last season’s 1-0 win.
Arsenal injury concern is Bukayo Saka. He sustained a hip injury against Newcastle and he is a doubt for Thursday’s game.
“I am hopeful but we don’t know. It’s a really short turnaround. The player has to be comfortable playing with a little injury.” Arteta said regarding Saka’s injury.
If Saka isn’t deemed fit, Gabriel Martinelli could finally get his first start in the Premier League this season after scoring over the weekend.
Granit Xhaka and Sead Kolasinac are ruled out of this game.
Predicted starting lineup
Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tavares; Partey, Lokonga; Martinelli, Lacazette, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang
