Arsenal will hope to extend their winning streak to six games across all competitions when they travel to face Luton Town on Tuesday.

A 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out saw Arsenal preserve their lead at the top of the Premier League table and Mikel Arteta will expect another three points against a Luton side hovering above the relegation zone.

Here's how the boss could set up for this one.

GK: David Raya - Firmly ahead of Aaron Ramsdale in the pecking order, Raya will hope for a quiet evening against the newly promoted side.

RB: Ben White - Takehiro Tomiyasu limped off injured against Wolves so Arteta may be forced to make a change he was likely to make anyway by bringing White back into the side.

CB: William Saliba - He might be tired but Saliba retains Arteta's full faith and will be expecting to start this one.

CB: Gabriel Magalhaes - Jakub Kiwior might hope for minutes but the Pole may have to watch Gabriel start once again.

LB: Oleksandr Zinchenko - Arteta did not hide away from discussing Zinchenko's error against Wolves but made no secret of his continued support for the Ukraine international, who is likely to start.

DM: Declan Rice - Really settling into his groove at Arsenal, Rice is an undisputed starter in this team.

CM: Kai Havertz - November was kind to Havertz, who started flashing some goalscoring form, and Arteta will hope to see that carry over into December.

CM: Martin Odegaard - Odegaard bagged the second against Wolves and, assuming he's fit, will definitely start again here.

RW: Bukayo Saka - Fresh off netting his fifth goal of the season, Saka could add to his tally against a weakened Luton defence.

ST: Gabriel Jesus - Eddie Nketiah will hope for some minutes but he may have to wait later in the game when Jesus needs a rest.

LW: Leandro Trossard - Having played in a deeper role last time out, Trossard could return to this spot out wide and give Gabriel Martinelli an extended breather.
