Mikel Arteta is hoping to have some of his players back from injury
Thomas Partey have also been injured quite a few times this season. Furthermore Mikel Arteta would be hoping to have both Gabriel Jesus and Smith Rowe back after the international break. They both are back on the pitch after their injury. Mikel Arteta used them as substitution in the 4-1 win against Crystal Palace. However they were not back to their full fitness even on Sunday. Therefore these two weeks of international break could be important for them to get back to full fitness. Gabriel Jesus was not named in the Brazil squad. Therefore he can spend this time working on his fitness. He is however yet to start in any Premier League match for Arsenal since his injury. Jesus sustained an injury at the World Cup which is why he had to leave the World Cup midway.
Mikel Arteta would be hoping that the Brazilian could be available more after the international break. The Gunners have somewhat missed the impact Jesus had on the squad. Smith Rowe on the other hand have failed to make into the starting line-ups since he returned back from his thigh injury.
