The Gunners will look to restore their five-point lead over Premier League title rivals Manchester City on Sunday when they make the short trip to west London to face Marco Silva’s Fulham.

Man City maintained the pressure on Mikel Arteta’s side with a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday evening but Arsenal can respond when they play their game in hand tomorrow.

Arsenal fans feared they would be taking a depleted squad to Fulham but Goal say Jesus, Trossard and Odegaard may now all feature.

Jesus enjoyed an impressive start to the season following a £50m move from Manchester City last summer but is yet to feature for Arsenal in 2023 after suffering a knee injury during Brazil’s World Cup campaign in Qatar.

The 25-year-old was pictured in training last week, however, and Arsenal considered taking him to Portugal for Thursday’s Europa League clash against Sporting Lisbon before deciding to leave him in London.

Arsenal have also been sweating over the fitness of January signing Trossard, who hobbled off during last weekend’s dramatic Premier League victory over Bournemouth.

The former Brighton winger missed the 2-2 draw with Sporting but is expected to travel with the Arsenal squad to Fulham on Sunday.

Arsenal were also without captain Odegaard at the Jose Alvalade Stadium but the Norway star is believed to have recovered from the illness that prevented him from featuring against Sporting Lisbon.
