Arsenal have confirmed that Ainsley Maitland-Niles is back in full training after recovering from illness.
The England under-21 international missed the home wins against BATE Borisov and Southampton having picked up the bug that was doing the rounds at London Colney.
He’ll likely replace Stephan Lichtsteiner in the starting lineup for Wednesday’s game against Bournemouth with the Swiss still struggling to recover from the back problem that forced him off on Saturday.
Alex Iwobi, arguably our man of the match against the Saints, is also a doubt. He picked up a knock to his right ankle and could be rested ahead of the North London derby at Wembley next weekend.
Having spoken about the importance of rotating his players this week, there could be other changes in midfield. Matteo Guendouzi, Mesut Ozil and Denis Suarez are all options should the boss choose to rest Lucas Torreira, Henrikh Mkhitaryan or Aaron Ramsey.
At the back, there’s also a chance to give more minutes to Dinos Mavropanos who got his first minutes of the season at Manchester City three weeks ago.
