Arsenal is relieved to see the return of the international break after a grueling Premier League run. Their recent match, a high-stakes encounter with Manchester City, saw Gabriel Martinelli’s late goal make all the difference.

However, there’s cause for concern on the injury front. Bukayo Saka, William Saliba, and Leandro Trossard had to withdraw from their respective national teams due to fitness worries following the game. Here’s the latest on Arsenal’s injury situation and potential return dates as they prepare for a clash with Chelsea:

Bukayo Saka: After an injury forced him off in a recent Champions League defeat to RC Lens, Saka was absent from the Arsenal squad against Manchester City. The winger’s injury concerns raised doubts about his availability for the international break. Although fans hope to see him against Chelsea in two weeks, an update from the England national team confirms he won’t be part of the international squad. Saka is currently undergoing injury rehab, with an assessment scheduled for the following Monday to determine his return to training.

Leandro Trossard: Trossard, who filled in for Saka against Manchester City, only played for 45 minutes and was then replaced by the matchwinner, Martinelli. He was expected to participate in Belgium’s European Championship qualifier matches but had to withdraw due to injury.

William Saliba: Despite being one of Arsenal’s standout players in the Manchester City match, Saliba had to withdraw from the French national team for the international break due to a toe injury. While the toe issue is not considered a major concern, Arsenal fans are hopeful he’ll return to face Chelsea.

Thomas Partey: Partey made a return from a groin injury, coming off the bench during the City game. He’s been named in the Ghana squad for upcoming matches, and Arsenal is eager for his safe return.

Gabriel Martinelli: Martinelli made a stylish return with a match-winning goal at the Emirates Stadium. He’s been excluded from the Brazil squad, allowing him to focus on his recovery over the next week.

Jurrien Timber: The Dutch international is currently in the recovery phase after successful surgery. However, he still relies on crutches for mobility. His return will be eagerly awaited, as Arsenal couldn’t secure a suitable replacement in the summer transfer window.
