Mikel Arteta has confirmed his starting XI for Arsenal's Champions League group stage clash with PSV Eindhoven at the Emirates. The main headline is that David Raya keeps his place between the sticks for the Gunners.
Arteta had hinted that Aaron Ramsdale could be used in rotation for the game after Raya came in for the first time against Everton at the weekend. However, the Spaniard starts once more with Ramsdale having to make do with a place on the bench.
One other change from Sunday's win sees Kai Havertz come back in in the left eight position. He replaces Fabio Vieira despite an impressive display from the Portuguese midfielder at Goodison Park.
Arsenal's third change sees Gabriel Jesus come into the starting XI for the first time this season after recovering from knee surgery. The Brazilian replaces Eddie Nketiah up front for Arsenal.
The fourth and final Gunners change sees Leandro Trossard replace Gabriel Martinelli on the left wing. The Brazilian is out injured after suffering a hamstring issue in the win at Everton.
Arsenal confirmed starting XI vs PSV — Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Rice, Havertz, Odegaard; Saka, Jesus, Trossard.
