Arsenal will be without Thomas Partey, Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel for tomorrow’s Premier League opener against Brentford.
Partey and Nketiah both suffered ankle injuries in the pre-season defeat to Chelsea while Gabriel had to miss the under-23s’ Olympics campaign with Brazil with a right knee injury.
The latest bulletin from the medical department says the Ghanaian will be back in training by the end of August. Nketiah and Gabriel will follow in early September.
On Sunday, Mikel Arteta mentioned that Rob Holding had missed out on the pre-season friendly with Spurs due to a fitness problem. We believe that he has recovered from whatever that was.
