Arsenal v Fulham Confirmed Team News & Predicted Line-up for today’s London derby

Arsenal will be looking to maintain their 100% winning start to the season when they take on Fulham this afternoon, and can be boosted by some returns to fitness.

Jurrien Timber and Mo Elneny remain ruled out for selection, but Gabriel Jesus has returned to training this week, and is confirmed as part of our playing squad.

I struggle to imagine he is ready to stake a claim for a first-team role, but he should play some sort of role from the bench.

One player who also misses out is Takehiro Tomiyasu, who is suspended after picking up two cautions against Crystal Palace, but Oleksandr Zinchenko looks ready to reclaim his place at LB.

Predicted Arsenal XI:

Partey White Saliba Zinchenko
Odegaard Rice Havertz
Saka Nketiah Martinelli

This team should have more than enough to deal with Fulham, who could well prove to be a team threatened with relegation as the season plays out, unless they can spend that Mitrovic income wisely, after the Serbian’s big-money move to Saudi Arabia.

Do you expect Mikel Arteta to change up his system this weekend, or do we need to get used to seeing Thomas as a RB for the remainder of the campaign?

  1. I see him mixing it a little bit. I expect changes. Gabriel comes back to left center back and white full back.
    White, Saliba, Gab, ziny
    Partey , Rice,Ode
    Saka, Nketiah,Martnelli

    1. I don’t know about Gabriel based in MA recent comments about Gabriel.
      ” he knows why he is not playing.for someone who played so many games for us last season,he has to show me that I am blind and wrong”.
      I don’t know what to make of it.also,what else does Trossard have to do to show MA that he is wrong and blind?

  2. Surely the absence of Mitrovic and Tim Ream will be felt.
    Still don’t expect Raya to start in this fixture, nothing left to chance





  3. I would love to us going back to last year tactics with Zinchenko Back in team as inverted LB
    We were seamless in that tactic also I would love to see the midfield of Partey, Rice and Odegaard
    No way through this midfield for opponent…
    Either one of them will sit just ahead of back 4 or they can simply rotate themselves in that role

  4. Not underestimating Fulham,I expect a comfortable @Gunsmoke pointed out,they are missing Mitrovic and are not the same team without him.i expect to get us a clean sheet too. COYG!!

  5. I would be shocked if Arteta rehashed the tactics from the first 2 games.

    It isn’t surprising opponents now, they know how it plays out, and we look slow and plodding with the possession over purpose approach.

    Likely Zinchenko inverted LB, and hopefully a midfield of Partey, Rice, and Odegaard.

    Havertz should come off the bench until he earns his starts, not strolling about.

  6. That first loss will come sooner than you think. Kiwor in LB when you have Zinchenko on bench? Partey will get injured soon from running up and down RB position.

    Arteta is crazy I tell you.

  7. Gabriel is the heart of AFC’s team he should always play when available i love what Arteta’s done and is doing for AFC but i cant agree on Gabriel not being in the team.
    AFC played great last year with White as full back,Partey in midfield and Zinchenko as the other full back.
    Rice for Xhaka and Timber as defensive cover was two great moves but How Arteta has come up with Havertz taking Parteys spot in midfield is beyond me ???
    We have Trossard and Smith Rowe who can play the role Havertz plays and nothing personal against Havertz he is a good player but DID WE NEED HIM ????

    1. Kai Havertz is not a good player.
      Why do you think Chelsea were so keen to be shot of him?
      A £65 million donkey.
      Chelsea must be pissing themselves laughing..

  8. £65 million for Havertz.
    If Arsenal fail to achieve anything this season then Arteta should be fired just for signing Kai Havertz.
    God awful signing that makes Pepe look like Thiery Henry.
    There was Kaba Diawara, Christopher Wreh, Davor Suker to name but a few.
    Kai Havertz is a terrible signing.
