Referee   Marco Guida (Italy)
Goal Scorer:

Massadio Haidara has not featured for Lens since their match against Sevilla due to a thigh injury, which should see Deiver Machado continue in the wing-back role for the foreseeable future.

David Costa (shoulder), Jimmy Cabot (ACL) and Wuilker Farinez (ACL) have been out with injuries since the start of the campaign, and none of them are expected to return for at least a few more weeks.

Big-money signing Elye Wahi got his long-awaited first goal for his new employers over the weekend and should continue in attack, with Angelo Fulgini and Florian Sotoca in support.
Lens possible starting lineup:
Samba; Gradit, Danso, Medina; Frankowski, Samed, Mendy, Machado; Fulgini, Sotoca; Wahi

After making a bright start to life in London, Jurrien Timber has been ruled out until the new year with a knee injury. However, Arteta has a ready-made replacement in Ben White, who scored the final goal against The Cherries last weekend.

Joining Timber on the treatment table is Thomas Partey (groin), while Gabriel Martinelli was expected to return to the squad last weekend and could do so in this one.

Fabio Vieira was given a run out last weekend after shaking off a knock and could return to the starting 11, while Saka limped off in the second half over the weekend with what Arteta called a 'pretty bad knock,' and could be rested here with a big match against Manchester City to come over the weekend.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Odegaard, Rice, Vieira; Trossard, Nketiah, Jesus
Prediction: Lens 1-2 Arsenal
