Fulham are sweating on the fitness of Ademola Lookman after the RB Leipzig loanee failed to shake off a knock in time for the defeat to Wolves last week.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is expected to start either way, having usurped the likes of Ivan Cavaleiro and Josh Maja in the pecking order.

However, Mitrovic has played in more Premier League London derbies without ever ending on the winning side than any other player in the competition's history, losing 14 out of 16.

Tom Cairney is definitely out of this trip to the Emirates Stadium, meanwhile, and Marek Rodak is their other known injury doubt.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Areola; Aina, Andersen, Adarabioyo; Tete, Lemina, Reed, Robinson; Cordova-Reid, Loftus-Cheek; Mitrovic

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang revealed on Thursday that he was recently hospitalised with malaria, explaining his absence for Arsenal's last two matches.

The club captain will again sit this one out, while David Luiz and Kieran Tierney are the Gunners' two other confirmed injury absentees. Martin Odegaard is also a major doubt.

Granit Xhaka has filled in well at left-back in the absence of Tierney, while Rob Holding and Pablo Mari have provided some stability at the back without Luiz.

Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka recovered from injury to play an important part in the win against Slavia, but Arteta is unlikely to want to push either player too hard.

Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Mari, Xhaka; Partey, Elneny; Willian, Ceballos, Martinelli; Lacazette
