Arsenal Team News
Arsenal will be without Granit Xhaka for the next few months, while Bukayo Saka was pulled off at halftime versus Palace after James McArthur gave him a terrible kick to the back of the leg.
Saka was “quite sore” after the game, according to Arteta, thus Lacazette has a chance to earn a start this weekend, with Aubameyang maybe shifting to the left and Nicolas Pepe staying on the right.
If that’s the case, Thomas Partey, Martin Odegaard, and Emile Smith Rowe might all keep their spots in midfield, with Albert Sambi Lokonga on the bench after his error for Palace’s second after Partey lost the ball for Benteke’s first on Monday.
Aston Villa Team News
Despite returning late from South America, Villa’s Emiliano Martinez and Douglas Luiz both started against Wolves, while Matty Cash was forced off with a dead leg but should be fit for the Emirates trip.
However, there are still doubts about offensive combination Leon Bailey and Bertrand Traore, although Morgan Sanson has returned to fitness to provide Smith with another midfield option.
Villa have had success with a four-man defence against Arsenal in the past and may be tempted to do so again here, though Smith will be wary of breaking up the Ings-Watkins combo up top.
