How Arsenal Have Lined up Recently

Mikel Arteta rarely messes with a winning formula and we could see an unchanged side against Erik ten Hag’s side.

Takehiro Tomiyasu has made a strong comeback from injury and has made the left-back spot his own. David Raya, Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba have formed a formidable partnership that has made Arsenal the best defensive team in the league.

Arsenal Recent Form and Tactics

Arsenal have lost just one game in the league since the start of 2024 when they were beaten by Unai Emery’s Aston Villa. Despite this, they are not on course to win the Premier League thanks to an unbelievable run of form their rivals Manchester City are currently in.

Arteta has stuck with a 4-3-3 formation this season which sees the full-backs invert into the midfield while in possession. No matter the personnel, the Spanish manager prefers to play this style of football which allows for an extra player in midfield. Tomiyasu will likely invert from his left-back slot to play alongside Partey.

When this setup, Rice is given a license to roam further up the field. When Jesus plays as the striker, he allows the wide players to cut in and attack the opposition goal, while Havertz plays more as a target-man for the Gunners.

Arsenal Injuries to Consider

Arsenal currently have no players out with injuries. Jurrien Timber the long-term absentee has also started training with the first team.
