Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka start against PSV Eindhoven, while Kieran Tierney is at left-back for the latest UEFA Europa League clash for Arsenal.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has chosen to go with a strong attacking lineup against PSV Eindhoven at the Emirates. The Spaniard has opted to start with Gabriel Jesus up front, while Bukayo Saka also features on the team sheet. Those selections highlight the importance of the game for the Gunners, who seek yet another win in the UEFA Europa League.
Takehiro Tomiyasu starts at right-back, with the pairing of Rob Holding and Gabriel Magalhaes lining up at the heart of the Arsenal defence. Kieran Tierney is back in the starting eleven and begins the game at left-back. Ben White and William Saliba will be preserved for the weekend, although they might feature from the bench.

The midfield setup is what we expected before the game, as Albert Sambi Lokonga starts at the base of the three-man unit. Fabio Vieira will be tasked with creative duties, as does Granit Xhaka, who starts on the left side of the field.
Arteta has not taken a risk with Gabriel Martinelli, and he has thus brough Eddie Nketiah into the wide position. Jesus will lead the line for Arsenal against PSV, with Saka operating from the right-hand side.
Arsenal Starting Lineup: Turner, Tomiyasu, Holding, Gabriel Magalhaes, Tierney, Vieira, Lokonga, Xhaka, Saka, Jesus, Nketiah
