Fixture: Arsenal vs Fulham
Competition: Premier League
Kick-off: 15:00 (UK time)

Arsenal have officially revealed their starting eleven and substitutes to welcome Fulham to the Emirates Stadium for their first game of 2019.

The Gunners were crushed 5-1 at Anfield by Premier League leaders Liverpool at the weekend and will be desperate to return to winning ways against Claudio Ranieri's Fulham.

Boss Unai Emery remains without Rob Holding, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Danny Welbeck. Nacho Monreal and Mesut Ozil are also absent.

In goal, Emery goes with Bernd Leno, while in defence the Spaniard picks Sokratis, Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi. Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi will look to control midfield, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are the attacking threat.

If Arsenal need to try to change the course of the game then Emery can look towards his substitutes, with options available including Lucas Torreira and Aaron Ramsey.
