Cedric Soares has returned to full training and could be part of Arsenal’s squad to face Bodo/Glimt at the Emirates on Thursday.
The 31-year-old has been sidelined with a calf problem for the best part of a month and is yet to feature this season.
Ahead of Sunday’s game with Liverpool, Mikel Arteta is expected to rotate his squad for the visit of the Norwegian.
If Ben White is rested, Cedric could potentially take over at right-back should Takehiro Tomiyasu be used as a centre-back alongside Rob Holding.
The Japan international has regularly played the position for his country and deployment there would mean both Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba could be given a breather.
Reiss Nelson is another who will be hoping for his first minutes of the season. The winger picked up a thigh injury on the eve of the new season and has only returned to full training in the last couple of weeks.
He took up a place on the bench for the north London derby and, in the absence of Emile Smith Rowe, is an option on the left as back-up to Gabriel Martinelli.
