Arsenal have 12 players away on international duty this week which doesn’t help manager Arsene Wenger given he’s been desperate to turn the side’s poor form around but can’t work on training with all the squad.
The Gunners boss is also sweating on the fitness of his two key players Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil who are both expected to feature for Chile and Germany respectively despite not being 100%.
