Team news

Mikel Arteta currently has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the London derby with Fulham.

However, Gunners fans will be itching to see summer signing Fabio Vieira who is yet to be get some Premier League minutes under his belt.

Reiss Nelson continues to be the only long-term absentee and the Englishman is not expected to return from his thigh injury until October at the earliest.

Elsewhere, Marco Silva’s first eleven should be relatively fresh having rested a lot of his key members for the loss against Crawley Town.

But midfielders Harry Wilson and summer signing Manor Solomon will still need to be assessed ahead of Saturday’s affair.
