Projected lineups:


Arsenal aims to climb to the summit of the Premier League as they welcome Luton Town to Emirates Stadium on Wednesday.


The Gunners lost their top position to Liverpool over the weekend following a goalless draw against Manchester City.


Despite recent injury concerns, Mikel Arteta remains confident that Bukayo Saka will be fit for the match against Luton tonight, after withdrawing from the England squad due to a minor muscle problem two weeks ago.


The winger made his return for Arsenal on Sunday against Manchester City, but he was substituted with 12 minutes remaining. Concerns arose that Saka might miss Wednesday’s match against Luton, however, Arteta clarified post-match that the decision was due to fatigue.


Arteta reassured, “He’s perfectly fine. We haven’t had a full training session, just recovery. Today, we will have a brief, light training session to prepare for the game and assess if he’s fit to start or not.


“Our focus is solely on Luton, ensuring we are well-prepared for the game and working hard to secure a victory.”


With a packed April schedule of eight games, Arsenal will need to rotate players. The return of Gabriel Martinelli, who made a comeback from a foot injury against City, provides a boost for the Gunners.


Gabriel Martinelli’s return has provided a much-needed boost for the Gunners, as he made a comeback from a foot injury by coming off the bench against City. When asked about his ability to play a full 90 minutes, Mikel Arteta confirmed that Martinelli is now fully fit and available for selection.


The team will assess the condition of every player during today’s training session and make the appropriate decision for tomorrow’s match. This presents an opportunity for Arteta’s men to apply pressure on their title rivals, especially since Liverpool will not be in action until they face Sheffield United on Thursday.


Additionally, Luton, who currently sit third from bottom, have proven to be formidable opponents for Premier League heavyweights this season, as demonstrated by their narrow 4-3 defeat to the Gunners at Kenilworth Road in December.
