Arsenal will return back to action on Saturday with a game against Newcastle United after the international break.
The Gunners have 6 points in having played four games to sit in 9th position as Unai Emery hopes to continue his winning momentum following back to back victories against West Ham and Cardiff City.
Ahead of Saturday’s game, Arsenal will be hoping for some positive news on Lucas Torreira, after the midfielder suffered a leg injury while in action for Uruguay during the international break.
Torreira was substituted at the second old of the game during Uruguay’s game with Mexico with ice strapped around his lower left leg.
The Gunners will also be without the likes of injured Carl Jenkinson, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Sead Kolasinac and Laurent Koscielny.
However, the Gunners have been handed a massive boost ahead of their trip to against Rafa Benitez’s side as Nigeria international Alex Iwobi looks set to return with his father sharing an update ahead of Saturday’s game despite his son pulling out from linking with the Nigeria national team.
Speaking to allNigeriasoccer.com. Chuka Iwobi said: “It was sad for Alex that he wasn’t in the squad for the Arsenal match versus Cardiff and had to withdraw from the national team for the match versus Seychelles.
“He is on the road to recovery and should be back before the game against Newcastle (on 15th September).
“He loves playing for Nigeria and was extremely disappointed (not to be available for the game against Seychelles).”
Meanwhile, here is how I think Unai Emery should line up against Newcastle United on Saturday.
Cech, Bellerin, Sokratis, Mustafi, Monreal, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Ramsey, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette.
