Oleksandr Zinchenko, Ben White, Emile Smith Rowe: Arsenal injury list and potential return dates

A look at the latest Arsenal injury news and potential return dates ahead of this weekend’s clash with Brentford.

Arsenal finally return to action this weekend when they face Brentford away from home.

The Gunners have seen their last two fixtures postponed on the back of the Queen’s death, with Thursday night’s Europa League clash called off due to a shortage in police resources.

But Arsenal fans will get one more look at their team ahead of the international break, with this week’s clash with Brentford going ahead.

The Bees have enjoyed a very good start to the season, and they have already shown themselves to be a real threat to big clubs.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are top after winning all-but one of their games so far, but they do need to bounce back from a defeat to Manchester United two weeks ago.

They are, however, battling a number of injury issues, with the international break coming at a good time for Mikel Arteta.

Here we round up all the latest injuries and return dates at the Emirates Stadium.

Oleksandr Zinchenko

Zinchenko has a muscular issue that will keep him out of international duty with Ukraine.

The versatile full-back will miss this one and it’s hoped he will return for the Tottenham game on October 1.

Ben White

White is another who will miss out on international duty, with hip and knee pain the reason given for his absence.

That means he is likely to miss the Brentford game for the same reason, likely to return after the break.

Thomas Partey

Partey is touch and go after missing Arsenal’s last four games across all competitions.

He has returned to training and he should be in contention, but it will be a decision for Arteta to make.

It will be interesting to see if Arsenal risk the midfielder this side of the break.

Emile Smith Rowe

Smith Rowe picked up a fresh groin injury last time out, and his presence against Brentford is not certain.

Fixtures were postponed this weekend

He could well be in contention, but if he is not risked, the wide man should definitely return after the break.

Reiss Nelson

Nelson has been out since pre-season when he picked up a thigh injury.

He is not expected to return until the Tottenham game, at the earliest.

Mohamed Elneny

Elneny has picked up a serious hamstring injury which is likely to keep him out for the coming months.

Arsenal will be without Elneny for some time with no news over his possible return.

Cedric Soares

Cedric missed the clash with FC Zurich last week, but he is expected to return here.

His presence will be helpful given some of the other injuries.
