Premier League

How Arsenal could line-up against Norwich with Ben, Gabriel and Partey all back but xhaka banned

The Spaniard coach finally has a near full-strength team to choose from for Arsenal's clash against Norwich at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The Emirates go into their home tie looking to avoid breaking the worst start by a team in Premier League history following three consecutive defeats.

The Gunners will only be without Xhaka who is suspended and Mohamed Elneny for the encounter against the Canaries.

Partey and Gabriel are expected to appear for the first time this term, while deadline day arrival tomiyasu could make his debut.

Here is how the Gunners could line up when they take on Norwich.

The German Goalkeeper is likely to keep his place between the sticks, for now, ahead of summer signing Aaron Ramsdale.

Tierney will slot in at left-back, with Tomiyasu to potentially start on.

The British defender has recovered from covid 19 and he could partner Gabriel in the heart of the defence with the Brazilian now available for selection following a thigh injury.

In Xhaka's absence, Lokonga could join forces with Partey in the middle of the pitch.

Bukayo could then be deployed on the left flank for the Gunners, with Ivorian Pepe to be deployed on the opposite wing.

The Norwegian midfielder could then feature in the No 12 role instead of Rowe, with skipper Aubameyang to lead the attack.
