Arsenal could welcome back Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang when they make the short trip to Fulham on Sunday. Both players were left behind for Thursday’s Europa League trip to Azerbaijan to face Qarabag, with Aubameyang having gone down with a virus, while Ramsey’s wife is close to giving birth to their second child.

Boss Unai Emery is hopeful he could have both men back for the clash at Craven Cottage as he gets set to make wholesale changes following nine alterations for the 3-0 win in midweek.
Should either Aubameyang or Ramsey miss out, Alex Iwobi could be handed the start after he impressed in recent weeks.
Petr Cech (hamstring), Ainsley Maitland-Niles (leg), Laurent Koscielny (Achilles) and Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin) are missing although Henrikh Mkhitaryan is back in the squad after missing the trip to Azerbaijan
