How Arsenal can line up against Fulham with Jesus and Martinelli up front while Arteta clings to victory

MIKEL ARTETA is set to commit to his winning formula when they face Arsenal Fulham on Saturday as he is set to name an unchanged side for the fourth game in a row.

Arsenal have collected the most points from their first three Premier League games to stay at the top of the standings.

Crystal Palace, Leicester and Bournemouth were served with relative ease as Arsenal scored nine goals and conceded only twice.

At this point last season, the North London side were at the bottom of the league after losing their first three games – scoring zero goals and riding nine.

But after the additions of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko, as well as the reintegration of William Saliba, Arteta’s squad is starting to look like a real bargain.

Next up for Arsenal is the London derby against newly promoted Fulham, which has surprised critics and fans with free football so far this season.

There were question marks over whether Aleksandar Mitrovic could repeat the impressive tournament format that saw him score 43 goals last season.

The last time in the First Division, the Serbia international scored only three goals, but he previously equalized that result after scoring against Liverpool and Brentford.

And with his physique potentially a problem, it would be foolish for Arteta to change his backline.

Portugal midfielder Fabio Vieira has yet to make his Arsenal debut since arriving for £34m due to injury, but although he is in great shape it is believed he will join the squad from the bench.

With that in mind, SunSport takes a look at how Arsenal set up against the undefeated Cottgers in the Emirates.

England international Aaron Ramsdale is almost certain to maintain his place among the sticks after establishing himself as the club’s number one goalkeeper.

Takehiro Tomiyasu is Arsenal’s first-choice right-back, but Ben White, who has not fouled since his substitution from central defender, kept him out of the squad.

Left-back Kieran Tierney may also find himself in the dugout once again with Zinchenko’s championship after his £32m arrival from Manchester City.

Saliba, who curled up in the recent 3-0 win over Cherries, will surely be Gabriel’s partner in central defense having smoothly entered the side after three loan spells.

Defensive midfielder Thomas Partey will be deployed as an anchor in front of the four defenders.

Skipper Martin Odegaard and Granit Xhaka will next play the two wandering men in Arteta’s revamped system.

Bukayo Saka will retain his place in the right wing although the Arsenal academy graduate has yet to open his account for this season.

Then Brazilian striker Gabriel Martinelli will appear on the opposite flank, with his compatriot Gabriel Jesus assigned to lead the attack line.
