Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has given a boost to fans by claiming that duo Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding could be back in action in the nearest future.

Speaking to Football London Emery said: “I want to have very competitive players in each position, with David Luiz, with Holding when he is coming to help us, training regularly and playing minutes. He is going to play tomorrow for the Under-23s.

“Also Hector Bellerin is coming back, I think one month more. Today we had Sead [Kolasinac] out and Kieran Tierney injured. We want to be strong defensively but above all being an offensive team.”

Gunners are missing a number of key players following the departures of the likes of Laurent Koscielny and Stephan Lichtsteiner over the summer, while new signing Kieran Tierney is injured and Sead Kolasinac is currently unable to play following an attempted car-jacking incident.

And despite that fact, Arsenal had a 1-0 win over Newcastle and will hope to make it two wins when they host Burnley.
