The Gunners are currently enjoying a fine run of results, winning nine of their last 10 Premier League outings.
Mikel Arteta's charges have dropped points just once so far this season, with the defeat coming during their trip to Old Trafford in September.

The north Londoners have a four-point advantage over Man City, who faltered in their latest outing against Liverpool.
City were humbled 1-0 by the struggling Merseysiders, with Mohamed Salah netting the winner at Anfield.
The loss denied the reigning champions a golden chance to close the gap on the Gunners, who had seen off Leeds United earlier on Sunday.

Arsenal backed to win EPL
Earlier, Sports Brief reported former Chelsea and Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole has conceded that Arsenal are favourites to win the Premier League title this season.
According to Cole, the Mikel Arteta-tutored side have all it takes to conquer the English top flight this season.
"I’m a believer now. We’ve seen them (Arsenal) trip up themselves so many times over 10 years; you always want to have another look and another look, but the process Mikel Arteta has been talking about for the last 12-18 months is starting to bear fruition," Cole said.
