Arsenal are set to play Crystal Palace once Premier League return to action after the international break on Monday 18th October.
And ahead of the upcoming London derby let’s take a look at the latest injury updates for Mikel Arteta’s side.
Thomas Partey was in action against Zimbabwe for Ghana, netting the second goal of the game as they won 3-1 on Saturday, staying on the pitch for the entirety of the contest. They face Zimbabwe again on Tuesday.
The midfielder struggles with injury issues at Arsenal missing couple of clashes, but now he seems fit.
Granit Xhaka has been left out of the Switzerland squad, who beat Northern Ireland 2-0 on Saturday and next face Lithuania on Tuesday.
The Swiss captain sustained a painful knee injury and will be back within three months.
Mohamed Elneny has been named in the Egypt squad for the current international break and has already played the full match as they defeated Libya 1-0 on Friday.
He previously suffered with some frustrating issues at the start of the campaign, having missed the wins against Norwich City, Burnley and Spurs. However, just like Partey, he seems fit to return to Gunners squad.
Bukayo Saka didn’t train with the rest of the England squad on Tuesday, but was not hampered against Andorra as he scored his third international goal and played the full 90 minutes.
The English winger limped off during the dying embers of the game at the Amex Stadium, but Arteta has since confirmed that the 20-year-old’s knock was nothing serious.
Takehiro Tomiyasu could well be a doubt by the time he gets home from Japan duty.
Following taking on Saudi Arabia, the Blue Samurai are set to take on Australia in a World Cup qualifier. The trip back alone is set to take a day so Tomiyasu is unlikely to be back in training until at least Thursday – giving him very limited time to prepare for Monday’s clash with the Eagles.
