Arsenal’s medical team have confirmed that Mohamed Elneny is out of Saturday’s game against Norwich having picked up a hamstring strain in a behind closed doors friendly with Brentford last week.
The Egyptian international is expected to be sidelined for about three weeks.
There is good news though, with both Thomas Partey and Gabriel Magalhaes available for selection after overcoming ankle and knee injuries respectively. The duo have yet to make an appearances this season, and after three defeats, their availability will be welcome news for under-pressure boss Mikel Arteta.
Ben White is also back, having missed the Chelsea and Man City games because of Covid-19, while Eddie Nketiah is fit again after his ankle problem.
Granit Xhaka, who tested positive for Covid on international duty, is suspended following his red card, and will not be available for selection until the North London derby on September 26th.
In case you forgot, the Gunners are in desperate need of a win after opening the season with three consecutive defeats, so three points against the Canaries is a must on Saturday.
