Arsenal issue early team news and injury updates ahead of Manchester United fixture

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta admits there is a chance Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could return to face Manchester United this weekend.

The club captain has missed the last two games because of a family issue, but could potentially return to action against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side on Saturday evening.

Arsenal could also be boosted by the return of Emile Smith Rowe and Thomas Partey after the duo were both forced off through injury in the win over Southampton earlier this week.

"I don't know," Arteta admitted at his pre-match press conference. "I spoke with him yesterday and things are looking better at the moment but we're going to have to wait and see."

Arteta added: "Let’s see how they come today. They had some discomforts in different parts, Thomas and Emile, and we will have to see how they evolve. We still have some days until the game but not long so let’s see how they recover.

"We will be training today and will see how everybody is. I think Dani Ceballos will be training with the squad in the next few days, Pablo Mari probably as well. Obviously Martin Odegaard will be joining us as well and for the rest we have to see how Kieran is. I think that's it."
