Team news: Partey makes his return

Arsenal team celebration against Aston Villa

Thomas Partey returns to the midfield for our midday kick-off away to Brentford, after missing our last four games.

He comes back in to replace Sambi Lokonga in one of three changes to the side for our last Premier League match, away to Manchester United.

The other two changes are both enforced – Oleksandr Zinchenko and Martin Odegaard miss out with calf problems, to be replaced by Kieran Tierney and Fabio Vieira respectively.

It's Vieira's first start in the Premier League, after impressing in the Europa League away to FC Zurich last week.

With Odegaard ruled out, Granit Xhaka takes the captain's armband, as he did for that 2-1 win in Switzerland.

Three potential debutants wait on the bench: midfielder Matt Smith, full back Lino Sousa and 15-year-old forward Ethan Nwaneri, who would become our youngest ever first-team player if he features. 

The hosts name in-form Ivan Toney up front, fresh from his England call up, while former Gunners youngster Josh Dasilva starts in midfield.

Arsenal: Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney, Partey, Xhaka, Saka, Vieira, Martinelli, Jesus. Subs: Turner, Sousa, Tomiyasu, Holding, Smith, Nwaneri, Lokonga, Marquinhos, Nketiah.
