Ahead of their next Premier League fixture, the Gunners dropped injury updates on four players.

Gabriel Martinelli has been passed as fit for Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Southampton on Saturday.

Despite suffering a knock in the 2-1 defeat to Everton on Monday night, the Brazilian has passed a full check-up. Therefore, he is all set to return to action for Mikel Arteta’s side.

The same cannot be said for Emile Smith-Rowe, though. The 21-year-old missed the club’s trip at Everton, having suffered a groin injury against Manchester United last week, and is a doubt for this weekend.

In the latest team report, Arsenal announced they continue to assess Smith Rowe’s injury. Goalkeeper Bernd Leno is also a doubt, after sustaining a groin problem himself in training last week.

Sead Kolasinac, meanwhile, continues to work on his recovery from an ankle injury that he sustained during the international break. The Arsenal full-back is running outside again and aims to return to training next month.
