- Mesut Ozil missed Sunday’s clash with Burnley through illness and Arsene Wenger may opt against playing him here with a view to this weekend’s clash with Manchester United. NaijaBet.com
- With Alex Iwobi also unlikely to play due to a dead leg, Jack Wilshere will fancy his chances of making a first Premier League start of the season.
- Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud will push for the chance to lead the line if Wenger wants Alexandre Lacazette fresh for the reception of Manchester United. NaijaBet.com
- Rajiv van La Parra is suspended after being sent off at the end of their 2-1 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.
- David Wagner will almost certainly have to ring the changes for the trip to Arsenal after their draining performance at the weekend.

- Chris Löwe may also regain his starting spot at left-back, while Abdelhamid Sabiri and Florent Hadergjonaj may also get rare chances to start. NaijaBet.com
