Reiss Nelson is Arsenal’s only injury concern heading into tomorrow’s match with Fulham.
The winger picked up a muscular injury on the eve of the new season and despite hinting on social media that he’s back on the pitch, remains sidelined for the time being.
Facing the press on Friday morning, Arteta said: “Everybody has trained this week and everybody is fine apart from Reiss who you know has been injured for a few weeks now.”
He added: “The mood is really good, the energy is really good, the boys trained exceptionally well again this week and we’re looking for another good performance and the right win.”
It remains to be seen whether Nelson is in Mikel Arteta’s plans for the season. The 22-year-old is a long way down the pecking order at Emirates Stadium and has been widely tipped to leave the club.
That said, with Nicolas Pepe joining Nice on loan for the year, it’s possible he could provide competition to Bukayo Saka if a replacement isn’t signed before the window closes.
