Oleksandr Zinchenko, who was substituted during Arsenal’s victory at Newcastle United due to a calf injury, is yet to be ruled out of the team’s remaining matches, according to manager Mikel Arteta. On Sunday, Kieran Tierney is anticipated to fill in for the injured William Saliba at left-back. Due to wounds sustained against Everton, Adam Webster and Solly March of Brighton are both out of commission. Evan Ferguson may make his first start since April 15th.

Arsenal Team News
With their own record of 26 victories in a Premier League season, Arsenal needs one victory. They won the championship in 2001–02 and 2003–042001–02 and 2003–04, respectively, reaching that milestone both times. The Gunners must win their final three games to match the club record for Premier League points (90), established through the ‘Invincibles’ team in 2003-04.
They have scored at least a pair of goals in each of their last six league contests at the Emirates, winning five and drawing the other.

They have only lost points in one of their past twelve Premier League home games played in May, winning 11 of those games. Also Read: Top 5 Oldest football clubs in La Liga
