    Despite Maradona once playing for Tottenham in a testimonial, Arsenal provide a fitting tribute to the football legend with a minute's applause in his memory.


    After a length wait in the tunnel, the teams of Wolves and then Arsenal make their way out on to the pitch at the Emirates.

    Both sets of players are kitted out in trendy tracksuit tops to combat the onset of winter.

    Any second now, shirts will be off and we'll be ready for action.


    Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returns this evening, and once again he has been handed the central striking role by Mikel Arteta.

    It's easy to see why: no Arsenal player has had more shots (13) or created more chances (11) than the Gabonese forward this season.

    However, Aubameyang has scored just one goal in his last eight league games – and that came from the penalty spot in the 1-0 win at Manchester United at the beginning of this month.


    21 Ruddy, 2 Hoever, 3 Ait-Nouri, 8 Neves, 17 Silva, 20 Vitinha, 49 Kilman.


    Captain Conor Coady comes back into the starting line-up, aswell as Marcal and Pedro Neto.

    Maximillian Kilman, Rayan Ait-Nouri and Ruben Neves drop to the bench.


    13 Runarsson, 9 Lacazette, 16 Holding, 17 Soares, 24 Nelson, 25 Elneny, 30 Nketiah.


    Bukayo Saka returns to the starting line-up, and David Luiz slots back into defence alongside Gabriel.

    Captain Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang continues up front.


    Arsenal have completed the signing of talented defender Reuell Walters from Manchester United.

    The right-back, 15, only joined the Red Devils last year following a successful trial, but he is already on the move back to North London.

    Walters was previously on the books at Arsenal's rivals Tottenham, meaning he is the second former Spurs youngster to link up with the club in 2020.

    Centre-back Jonathan Dinzeyi joined the Gunners in the summer after being released by Jose Mourinho's side.

    Teenage star Walters took to social media where he spoke of his delight at joining the FA Cup holders.

    He tweeted: "New chapter. New beginning.

    "Thanks to God and everyone who has played a part in my journey so far, especially my mum, dad, sister, family, and friends. 

    "Also a very special thank you to everyone at Arsenal for believing in me. Excited to get started!"
