Gabriel Magalhaes hasn’t been included in the playing squad since we went to Manchester City last month, having initially been in contact with a confirmed Coronavirus patient, before testing positive himself after the Chelsea clash on Boxing Day.
Thomas Partey has been out since limping off against Tottenham at the start of last month, and has been eased back into training over the last two weeks, and still needs to be assessed before he will be confirmed as available.
Arsenal’s Boxing Day win over Chelsea felt like a turning point at the time and that has proved the case in their three matches since, each of those ending in victory.
As well as beating Brighton and Hove Albion and West Bromwich Albion in the league, the Gunners also saw off Newcastle United 2-0 with the aid of extra time in Saturday’s FA Cup third-round tie.
With back-to-back home league matches with Palace and Newcastle to come this week, the aim for Arteta now will be to climb the division from his side’s current standing of 11th.
Arsenal have fared well in previous London derbies this term, too, taking more points from their capital rivals than any other side (nine). Indeed, they have won three out of four such fixtures this term, already one more than in the whole of 2019-20.
