Who will start at right back? Is Thomas Partey fit or will Jorginho make his second start in a row? Will Emile Smith Rowe make the squad?

Arsenal look to bounce back after they’ve failed to win in their last three Premier League games which has meant the Gunners have dropped from first place in the league for the first time since November.

Mikel Arteta’s side still have a game in hand while sitting level on points with Manchester City, but the Arsenal boss will know his side must get back to winning ways in Saturday’s early kick-off, if they want to challenge for the title come May.

Here’s how we expect Mikel Arteta to line-up…

now.arsenal’s predicted line-up vs Brentford: Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Jorginho, Xhaka, Odegaard, Saka, Nketiah, Trossard.

We expect the boss to make a few changes after the defeat at to Manchester City. We expect Ben White to come back in at right back, over Takehiro Tomiyasu.

It’s been widely reported Thomas Partey hasn’t travelled to Villa Park despite training all week, as he’s set to be left out a precaution this weekend due to the slight muscle injury he picked up in Tuesday’s training session.

We also think Leandro Trossard will get his first Premier League start today over Gabriel Martinelli, just to freshen things up at top.

Emile Smith Rowe has trained all week & has travelled to Villa Park with the Arsenal squad. Arsenal’s number ten will be involved today which is great news.
