Bukayo Saka is on the bench for Arsenal’s final game of the season.

Mikel Arteta has spoken this week about fears Saka could suffer from burnout at Euro 2020 and the winger has perhaps been rested against Brighton with that in mind.

With Arsenal knowing a win could see them finish seventh and qualify for the Europa Conference League, Martin Odegaard starts in what is the final game of his loan from Real Madrid.

Granit Xhaka starts in midfield, with Kieran Tierney at left-back.

David Luiz and Hector Bellerin are not in the squad due to injury and, as expected, and there is no Willian either.

Goalkeeper Mat Ryan is not be part of the squad as he cannot play against his parent club Brighton, who he is on loan from.

Arsenal XI: Leno, Chambers, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney, Xhaka, Partey, Odegaard, Pepe, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang.

Subs: Runarsson, Saka, Ceballos, Lacazette, Cedric, Mari, Elneny, Nketiah, Martinelli.
