Arsenal have released another of their action-packed fitness bulletins, again reaffirming that Sead Kolasinac will return to training in October.
The Bosnian, who injured his knee in a pre-season friendly with Chelsea on 1 August was ruled out for 10 weeks at the time.
Obviously, that’s still some time away and, coupled with the injury to Ainsley Maitland-Niles – still out until November – it means we’re still heavily reliant on Nacho Monreal at left-back.
The medical department also reaffirmed that Carl Jenkinson (sprained ankle) and Laurent Koscielny (banjaxed Achilles) remain on the sidelines until November.
There was no mention of Mesut Ozil’s sniffly nose. ?
Unai Emery is expected to face the press this afternoon ahead of our trip to Cardiff City on Sunday, no doubt he’ll be asked if there are any other fitness doubts.
