Predicted Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Nottingham Forest
Arsenal have the opportunity to reclaim the top spot in the Premier League when they host Nottingham Forest this afternoon.
The Gunners have been sensational in the top-flight campaign, winning nine of their 11 games. They will be eyeing another victory.
Aaron Ramsdale made his European debut on Thursday after an injury for Matt Turner. He was guilty of conceding the second goal in the 2-0 loss to PSV and needs to step up against Forest.
The defence should see a solitary change from the Southampton draw last weekend. The Gunners need more creativity from the full-back roles and Kieran Tierney may start at left-back ahead of Takehiro Tomiyasu.
In midfield, Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey are guaranteed to start, but they now have quality back-up with Mohamed Elneny fit following his hamstring injury against Fulham in August.
In attack, it should be the same personnel from recent league outings. Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus are automatic starters in attack for the Gunners.
Jesus is under some pressure with six goalless games, but will be hoping to turn around his fortunes. The Brazilian has been getting into superb scoring positions, only to be let down by his finishing.
Predicted Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus.
