It remains to be seen if Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette will be rewarded for his late goal against Crystal Palace with a recall for the Aston Villa clash.

Bukayo Saka’s fitness will be assessed ahead. The England winger was forced off at half-time in Monday’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace after being kicked on his calf, although he is expected to be in contention to play some part.

Granit Xhaka (knee) is the only certain absentee for Mikel Arteta’s side, with Alexandre Lacazette pushing for a first league start of the season having scored off the bench last time out.

“We have two or three players that finished the game with some issues,” Arteta said on Thursday.

“He (Saka) hasn’t trained yet so we have to assess him and see how he is. It is down to the doctors and see how he recovers, see how he is today and tomorrow.”

Aston Villa will have Matty Cash available after he was forced off against Wolves. The defender came off late in the derby defeat with a dead leg but is fit for the trip to the Emirates.

Leon Bailey and Bertrand Traore are available after their hamstring injuries while Keinan Davis has also returned to training. Trezeguet (knee) remains a long-term absentee. (Text, excluding headline: Sky Sports)
