Latest Arsenal Injury Report For The Week

Latest Arsenal Injury Report For The Week

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette will be in contention to play Watford after the international break despite being taken off injured against Tottenham at the weekend.

There were concerns that the Frenchman was suffering from a hamstring issue, but manager Unai Emery confirmed after the game that the forward had not picked up a serious problem. It has been reported that the 28-year-old was simply suffering from cramp.

Kieran Tierney is in line to make his debut for the first team later this month. The left-back signed from Celtic on deadline day in early August but has been recovering from a groin injury.

He has played for both the Under 23s and the Under 21s in the EFL Trophy over the past couple of weeks and could return after the international break.

Rob Holding is in a similar position to Tierney. The defender has been building up his fitness with the Under 23s, playing the full 90 minutes of the 2-2 draw against Everton ten days ago. The 23-year-old has not played for the first team since injuring his knee last December.

Hector Bellerin is slightly further behind in his recovery, having sustained his ACL injury in the 2-0 win over Chelsea in January. He is expected to make his comeback at the start of October.

Konstantinos Mavropanos continues to struggle with a groin issue that has plagued him for the last two seasons. He is, though, likely to return to full training within the next few weeks.

Emile Smith Rowe is back in full training after making his own recovery from a chronic groin problem. He will likely get game time in the Carabao Cup and Europa League this season.
