Arsenal have issued injury updates on Alexandre Lacazette and Emile Smith-Rowe, with the former remaining on course for an October return to the first-team fold.
It has generally been a good week for the Gunners as far as injuries go, with the defensive duo of Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding making returns against Nottingham Forest, while new signing Kieran Tierney made his debut after overcoming a hip injury.
Lacazette, however, remains out with a minor ankle injury that has kept him out since the 2-2 draw with Spurs before the international break, and Monday's trip to Manchester United will come too soon for the striker.
He had been expected to return after the next international break which takes place after the Gunners play host to Sheffield United on 6th October, and according to official word from the club, that ship remains on course.
Confirming that the injury is to his left ankle, a club statement reads: "

"Substituted just before half time on Tuesday as a precaution after a collision," it goes on. "Continues to be assessed and will follow a graded return back into full training."
