Arsenal have been handed a fitness boost with news that Francis Coquelin and Hector Bellerin are fit enough to return to first team-action, according to Standard Sport.
The Gunners take on Burnley at the Emirates on Sunday and are also expected to have Kieran Gibbs available after he resumed full training after an ankle problem.
Bellerin was tipped to return against Swansea last time out but failed to make the squad with Gabriel once again covering at right-back as Arsenal ran out 4-0 winners.
However, the Spaniard could return against a Burnley side that is yet to win away in the Premier League this season and has managed just three goals on their travels.
He could be joined by Coquelin who is also back in contention after recovering from a hamstring problem that forced him off in the 3-3 draw with Bournemouth.
Coquelin was originally expected to be out for three to four weeks but has recovered quicker than expected which will be a major boost particularly with Mohamed Elneny away with Egypt and Santi Cazorla out for the long-term.

Arsenal do, however, still have injury problems further forward with Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott doubtful for the game.
Giroud picked up an ankle problem against Swansea, although manager Arsene Wenger said after the game he hoped the problem was not too bad.
The striker’s absence would be a blow, as he is in fine form having scored in each of his last nine starts for Arsenal, scoring 11 in total.
The game is also expected to come too soon for Theo Walcott who is still sidelined with a calf problem.
