Arsenal have been somewhat decimated by injuries to some key players and the list of injured players might be more after the international break.
However, reports have indicated that Arsenal striker Lucas Perez is recovering well from the ankle injury he picked up in the game against Ludogrets.
Perez, who joined the Gunners for a fee of around £17million in the summer, has jetted back to his former club Deportivo La Coruna for more rehab.
The 28-year-old Spaniard picked up a knock in Arsenal’s EFL Cup victory over Reading last month and is expected to be back in action again in December.
‘Happy thatand have agreed for me to return to Coruna,’ Perez told his followers on Twitter on Wednesday evening.
Perez is desperate to prove to Arsenal supporters that he’s the real deal after a difficult start to life in north London.

‘I have been 15 days out and they told me it would be between six and eight weeks. The ankle is reacting well,’ he recently told Radio Station Cadena Cope.
We are meeting the deadlines. Now I am just thinking in recovering as soon as possible and that Arsene Wenger will give me more minutes as he was doing before the injury.’
