Team News: Unfortunately, Fulham will be without Joao Palhinha, who is serving the second of a two-match ban. Arsenal has concerns about the availability of midfield captain Martin Odegaard and defender Kieran Tierney, both of whom missed the Europa League draw due to illness.
"I hope they do [train],” Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said. “Martin was feeling better and then he became a little bit worse, but hopefully he is able to train today."
Additionally, attacker Leandro Trossard is doubtful after injuring his groin against Bournemouth, while Eddie Nketiah could miss out with an ankle injury. Arteta has hinted at Gabriel Jesus's return from a knee injury, but the team is unlikely to rush him into action.
“He had a bad injury and he’s been really pushing the boundaries and trying to get that recovery as quick and smooth as possible,” the boss added.
