Jose Holebas is a slight injury concern for the trip to Arsenal after picking up an ankle injury in the 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion. Should the Greek defender be ruled out, Marvin Zeegelaar or Miguel Britos provide the alternatives at left-back. Following back-to-back clean sheets, other defensive changes are unlikely, particularly with Kiko Femenia (illness) a doubt. In the 4-2-3-1 formation Javi Gracia has favoured recently, changes are also not expected in central midfield. Will Hughes came off the bench to provide an assist against the Baggies and is a possible alternative in the attacking midfield positions. Despite impressing as a substitute in recent matches, Stefano Okaka isn’t expected to push for a start. Younes Kaboul, Craig Cathcart, Tom Cleverley and Christian Kabasele could all remain sidelined, while Nathaniel Chalobah and Gerard Deulofeu are long-term absentees.
