With slow but steady progress on a number of fronts this week, here’s our Arsenal injury news for Aston Villa this weekend.
Arsenal are slowly trimming their injury list at the moment. David Luiz is the latest to close in on a return, and he should be fit in time for this weekend’s match.
Mikel Arteta recently confirmed that Pablo Mari had a setback in his recovery, but he should be returning to full training soon. The last update we had on October 28th was that he’d return to full training after the November international break.
Gabriel Martinelli is back out on the grass playing with the ball again, but he’s still a way off reclaiming his place in the starting lineup. Arsenal don’t expect him back out there until towards the end of the year.
Fortunately, those are all the injuries we’re aware of at the time of writing. The likes of Bukayo Saka, Rob Holding, Dani Ceballos, and the rest have all avoided any setbacks after their recent recoveries.
