Judging by their absence from Arsenal’s latest medical bulletin, Rob Holding, Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin came through their return to first team action unscathed.
The trio all featured against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday and could be in contention to feature in some capacity against Manchester United on Monday.
Unai Emery has already suggested that Hector Bellerin might be better served playing for the under-23s as part of a gradual reintegration, however, it wouldn’t be surprising if Holding and Tierney make the bench at Old Trafford.
Having suffered a head injury that forced him off in the first half on Tuesday, the club have confirmed that Emile Smith Rowe is still being assessed. They state he will follow a graded return back into full training, presumably in line with the Premier League’s concussion protocol.
The only other player still sidelined is Alex Lacazette, who should return from his ankle injury next month.
