Team news: Jesus starts against Sporting

Programme and pennant pre-Sporting

After coming on for the final 20 minutes of our win over Fulham on Sunday, Gabriel Jesus is named in the starting XI for our Europa League tie against Sporting at Emirates Stadium.

The Brazilian forward is one of six changes Mikel Arteta makes to the lineup from the weekend’s fixture.

Aaron Ramsdale keeps his place between the posts, while the only change to the defence sees Takehiro Tomiyasu come in at right back.

Jorginho is in midfield with Fabio Vieira and Granit Xhaka – who takes the armband from Martin Odegaard.

Jesus is flanked by Gabriel Martinelli and Reiss Nelson up front.

Arsenal: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Jorginho, Xhaka, Vieira, Nelson, Martinelli, Jesus

Subs: Turner, Hillson, Tierney, Holding, Kiwior, White, Partey, Smith Rowe, Odegaard, Saka, Trossard
