Arteta gives a status report on the team’s health. Mikel Arteta gave an update on the fitness of several key players before our Premier League match against Brentford.

The head coach informed the press that there will be no decisions made on the squad prior to tomorrow since “one or two individuals can be considered for training and selection.”

“Whoever will have to be eliminated from consideration, that will take place tomorrow. “Those twenty-four hours will tell us a lot,” he added.

In the meantime, Emile Smith Rowe is still questionable for the upcoming match because he has been having some soreness in the region of the groyne.

During the press conference held before the Brentford match, Mikel stated, “It’s been a continuous issue that Emile’s had.” “It’s something we are trying to assess, and we are trying to help as much as possible because we need him to be fit, we need him to be available, and we need him to perform at the best level because he’s such an important player for us,” the coach said. “We need him to perform at the best level because he’s such an important player.”

Although the graduate of Hale End has not yet started for us in the Premier League this season, he did come on as a substitute in the second half of the match we played against Manchester United most recently.

Arteta has stated that Ben White does not have any injuries, contrary to the widespread belief that Southgate’s decision was based on concerns regarding White’s health and ability to participate in the upcoming match for England.

Regarding Alex Zinchenko, who did not participate in either of our games against Aston Villa or Fulham, Arteta has not yet ruled out the possibility of him playing this weekend: “Once more, we are going to have to hold off on making that choice until tomorrow.

“Just because we have chosen to do something for the international break does not mean that we will say the same thing for the weekend. Therefore, this is something that we will discuss tomorrow.”
