Arsenal’s injury list is clearing up pretty fast, with Rob Holding, Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin all having been given their first run-outs of the season against Nottingham Forest.
However, Emile Smith Rowe’s concussion on Tuesday night means he will be out for the next two weeks. After the game, manager Unai Emery described it as “not a serious problem” but the Gunners are taking extra precautions with the head injury.
Alexandre Lacazette is the only other player not in training. The Frenchman has been struggling with an ankle problem since the start of the season and he will be rested until October so he can regain full fitness.
Konstantinos Mavropanos is fit but did not feature in the squad for the Forest game. The Greek international has been out with a groin problem and will continue his recovery with more minutes for the under 23s. He is, though, close to a first-team return.
