Arsenal manager Unai Emery is set to be handed an injury boost with several players closing in on a return to training.
The Gunners are on a fine run of form, having won nine games in a row in all competitions.
Absent in the rout at Craven Cottage, Mesut Ozil has returned to full training at the club’s London Colney base after suffering a back spasm prior to the game.
Now back in training with his teammates over the international break given he called time on his Germany career after the World Cup, the ex-Real Madrid man will be hoping to be named in the starting XI against Leicester City.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles is also due to return to training next week ahead of the game against the Foxes, although you would expect the fixture to come too soon for him to feature.
A starter in the opening day defeat against Man City, the highly-rated midfielder has had to watch on from the sidelines over the past two months after suffering a small fracture to his left fibula against Pep Guardiola’s side.
