Arsene Wenger has given the latest team news ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Hull.
Theo Walcott may be available – the boss is waiting to see how he responds to today’s (Friday’s) training session.
Aaron Ramsey, meanwhile, is set to still be out. There are no further problems but the club are being cautious with him since it was his hamstring. He was originally meant to return after the international break and he is back in training, he just needs more time.
Gabriel in back in training and could play on Tuesday in our EFL Cup match against Nottingham Forest.
At Colney. Wenger: "Walcott could be back in the squad. He will be assessed. Ramsey is still out. Gabriel back in training, might play Tue."

Petr Cech will return to the starting XI after David Ospina appeared in his place against PSG on Tuesday. It does appear as if the former Czech international is our designated Premiership ‘keeper while the Colombian will stand in for other fixtures but obviously this remains to be seen.
Other than this, there are no added injuries and everyone who should be returning, should do soon.
