Arsenal currently have four players on the treatment table, with two of them closing on a return to first-team action. Gabriel Martinelli has yet to feature under Mikel Arteta after a tight hamstring kept him out of the Spaniard’s first game in charge against Bournemouth.
The 18-year-old is being assessed ahead of tonight’s game against Leeds and has a chance of being back in the squad this evening. It’s a similar case for Hector Bellerin, who has been sidelined with the same issue since pulling up in the warm-up for the game against West Ham last month.
The Gunners confirmed last week that Calum Chambers is set for a long spell on the sidelines. The defender suffered a ruptured anterior ligament in his left knee in the defeat to Chelsea. He had surgery last week and is expected to be out for between six to nine months.
Kieran Tierney, meanwhile, remains out with a dislocated shoulder. He sustained the injury versus West Ham and his rehabilitation will likely take up to three months. A return is likely in March.
Both Rob Holding (knee) and Dani Ceballos (hamstring) are back in training and are available for selection for upcoming games.
