Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang comes in for Nicolas Pepe, while Bukayo Saka drops to the bench as well, as Arsenal prepare to take on Norwich City.
Mikel Arteta has made four changes to the side that beat Sheffield United in the FA Cup this past weekend as Arsenal get set to lock horns with Norwich City in their first home game since the resumption of the Premier League.
Emiliano Martinez starts in the Arsenal goal once again, with Bernd Leno still on the sidelines. The first change comes in defence, with Hector Bellerin replacing Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Bellerin starts as the right wing-back, with Sead Kolasinac deployed on the opposite flank once again. David Luiz, Shkodran Mustafi and Kieran Tierney line up in the back-three.

Up ahead in midfield, Dani Ceballos is recalled after scoring the winner in the FA Cup quarter-final, with the Spaniard coming in for Joe Willock. Ceballos will pair up with Granit Xhaka in the midfield double pivot. The final two shuffles come in attack, as Nicolas Pepe and Bukayo Saka bow out, with Pierrre-Emerick Aubameyang making his expected return.
Arsenal captain Aubameyang starts on the left wing, with Alexandre Lacazette leading the line for the hosts against Norwich. Saka, who signed a new deal with the Gunners today, drops out after featuring in each of the four games since the return of football in England, while the final spot in the side is taken up by Reiss Nelson.
