Arsenal have confirmed that Petr Cech will be sidelined for up to a month which is actually great news because it looked like he could be sidelined a lot longer.

The 36-year-old picked up the hamstring issue as he cleared the ball against Watford at the weekend, and was replaced by Bernd Leno for his Premier League debut. It was initially feared that he had torn his hamstring but scans showed that the damage is minor.

Arsenal, like everybody else, have an international break coming up which means that we only really lose Cech for a fortnight but in Leno and Emi Martinez we have more than adequate cover.

In other news, Emile Smith Rowe has recovered from the hip problem he picked up against Brentford in the Carabao Cup while Dinos Mavropanos, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Laurent Koscielny continue their rehabs and are on track to return at the end of October, end of October and November respectively.
