Attack – Pepe, Lacazette, Martinelli
Bukayo Saka needs to be protected by Arteta after picking up the odd niggly injury of late, and this looks to be a good game to give him a breather from the start.
Gabriel Martinelli should benefit and come into the side off the left.
Alexandre Lacazette has scored four goals in the last week as he attempts to earn himself a new contract.
Nicolas Pepe should start on the right after scoring his 10th goal of the season in midweek.
Arsenal’s expected XI vs Fulham in full: Leno; Cedric, Holding, Gabriel, Xhaka; Partey, Ceballos, Smith Rowe; Pepe, Lacazette, Martinelli.
