Arsenal injury update: Two Arsenal players are set to return this month, as Unai Emery’s side aim to maintain their winning run.
Arsenal has been in sublime form this season. After losing the two opening Premier League games to Man City and Chelsea, the Gunners are yet to drop points in the league. Unai Emery’s side currently sits at 4th in the league, with only two points behind league leaders Manchester City.
The Gunners are also on a nine-match winning streak in all competitions, which include a win in their first round of Carabao Cup over lower-league side Brentford, and two Europa League group matches.
Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have found their goal-scoring boots, as both scored a brace in their last match against Fulham this weekend. Arsenal thumped the newly-promoted side 5-1 at Craven Cottage to take a lead over Tottenham in the table.
Arsenal has also released their latest injury update, and Gunners’ fans have further good news.

Konstantinos Mavropanos is also recovering well and will return to full training by the end of the month. The defender is yet to make an appearance this season, owing to a groin strain. The club captain, Laurent Koscielny will return to full training in November.
Sead Kolašinac accepted the call up to the Bosnia-Herzegovina National Team, but Arsenal have requested the player to stay back in London. They do not want him to risk re-injury after having made a full recovery last week. [@BHlive_official] pic.twitter.com/IuvZl72zcS

The French defender is currently working on rehabilitation.
Gotta be impressed with Sead Kolašinac attitude. Came in highly rated after being the Bundesliga left back of the year, started out great but injuries and taking some to adjust have set him back a bit but he was jumping off the bench for goals yesterday.. hopefully he picks it up

Mesut Ozil also returned to training after missing the match against Fulham last weekend. The German announced his retirement from international football after the World Cup, and hence, is not playing during the break.
Ozil is expected to be in contention for the match against Leicester City in the Premier League.
