Arsenal v Luton Town: Five changes for Arteta

Share This Post

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has made five changes to his starting XI for tonight’s clash with Luton Town, with Bukayo Saka not fit enough to be included in the matchday squad.

Gabriel Jesus, Declan Rice, Jorginho and Jakub Kiwior drop out of the team that gained a well-earned 0-0 draw at Manchester City on Sunday and start on the bench.

Saka, who limped off at the Etihad, gets the night off to recover.

In come Thomas Partey, Reiss Nelson, Emile Smith Rowe, Leandro Trossard and Oleksandr Zinchenko.

On Saka, Arteta told TNT Sports: “He had to come off against Manchester City three days ago feeling something and he hasn’t been able to do everything that we needed to give him the chance to start the game. So we have decided not to play him.”

Luton make three changes from the team that lost 2-1 at Tottenham on Saturday.

Out go Reece Burke, Luke Berry and Tahith Chong with Daiki Hashioka, Fred Onyedinma and Jordan Clark come in.

Christian Chigozie, 16, is named on the bench.
