LINE-UP: Martinelli and Havertz are expected to start for Arsenal against Fulham.

LINE-UP: Martinelli and Havertz are expected to start for Arsenal against Fulham.

As they prepare to host Fulham and look to maintain their strong start, Arsenal will be back at the Emirates for another London derby. Let’s look at the predicted starting lineup.

After being reduced to 10 men, the Gunners had to fight hard to defeat Crystal Palace and earn three crucial points. However, they displayed remarkable fortitude to repel the Palace attack and leave Selhurst Park with three points.

Despite the arrival of David Raya, Aaron Ramsdale should stay in goal and would like to record another shutout. The addition of Alex Zinchenko and Ben White switching to the right back position may cause a change in the fullbacks.

Gabriel, who has played in the last two games off the bench, should get his first start of the year as a result. The Brazilian will face off against a team that isn’t as proficient in attacking as some of the other teams with his regular partner William Saliba.

To play in midfield is where Thomas Partey should see himself. The Ghanaian international and Declan Rice will form the midfield two and try to establish their dominance over the match. As Partey can clean up behind him, Rice will be free to advance with a lot more vigor.

The three magicians—Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, and Gabriel Martinelli—can be seen further in front of them. Only the Brazilian has yet to score, and Saturday would be a fantastic chance for him to do so. The visitors will have a difficult day if the wingers can get into advantageous positions.

Even though Gabriel Jesus will be back with the team, Kai Havertz is more likely to take Eddie Nketiah’s place as the primary striker. The German’s height is an additional benefit, and this will give the north Londoners more control in the midfield.

Arsenal will be confident that they can win their third game in a row, but they must watch out for concentration lapses. The likelihood of them giving a strong performance increases significantly if they can do that.

Arsenal’s predicted lineup against Fulham (4-2-3-1) is as follows.

Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli, Kai Havertz, Aaron Ramsdale, Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel, Alex Zinchenko, Thomas Partey, Declan Rice.
