Arsenal pair Cedric Soares and Reiss Nelson could be fit to return after the international break, according to Goal‘s Gunners correspondent Charles Watts.
The journalist had already confirmed earlier this week that Martin Odegaard and Oleksandr Zinchenko were winning their fitness battles to play against Tottenham, and in his latest article, he has also said two further players could be back in contention for the North London derby:
Arsenal hopeful Odegaard and Zinchenko will be available to face Spurs, Nelson could make the squad. Partey’s fitness being closely monitored while with Ghana.

Cedric has been sidelined with a knock since the 2-1 win over FC Zurich in the Europa League earlier this month, but it looks as though he could be back on the bench to face Spurs.
Nelson has been out for even longer. The winger was among the substitutes for the season opener against Crystal Palace but he has been struggling with a muscular injury since then.
If all four players are back in training next week, it means that (barring any more injuries on international duty), Emile Smith Rowe (groin) and Mohamed Elneny (hamstring) will be the only two players left on the treatment table.
