Gabriel Martinelli (RW) – Ran himself into the ground on the weekend, reminding Arsenal fans exactly why supporters were so enamoured by him before his injury.
Arteta will not want to break up a winning formula, so keeping Martinelli in the side, even on the opposite flank, may be the way he’s see best fit. Furthermore, Bukayo Saka could be granted a rest ahead of another fixture just three days later.
Alexandre Lacazette (ST) – When your strikers are in form, they have to play. Lacazette now has two in two, and while he isn’t the answer to Arsenal’s issues long-term, Arteta will not want to break up his attack too significantly.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (LW) – The captain comes straight back in. Despite the best performance this season coming without the talisman, nobody is disillusioned in believing Aubameyang is not the best striker at the club.
If Arsenal can maintain their attacking impetus, then the goals will return for the 31-year-old. Even it it’s out on the left flank, he starts against Brighton.
