It will take place in the 14th minute of the match at the Emirates Stadium, when the Gunners take on Bournemouth.

Daniel was killed in the sword attacks in Hainault, north-east London, on Tuesday, which left four other people injured.

One fan account wrote online: “Arsenal loving Daniel will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.”

More than £95,000 has been raised for Daniel’s family through a GoFundMe page.

A candlelight vigil will be held on Sunday in memory of the schoolboy at the Hainault metro station.

Marcus Monzo, 36, from Beckton, east London, is charged with murder, two attempted murders, aggravated robbery, two counts of grievous bodily harm and possession of a sword.

He will appear at the Old Bailey on Tuesday.
