Attack: Martinelli, Pepe, Nketiah
Young winger Gabriel Martinelli, who has impressed since his return from a long-term knee injury, is expected to start the match as he continues to chase peak fitness.
Nicolas Pepe could partner him on the opposite flank, with England under-21 record goalscorer Eddie Nketiah at the tip of Arsenal’s attacking trident.
The latter has failed to convince fans that he can be the answer to the club’s woes in attack, but is likely to receive the opportunity to add to his goal tally on Saturday.
Prospect Folarin Balogun, who has been linked with a move to Liverpool in recent weeks, may be named among the substitutes at the Emirates Stadium.
