Arsenal’s injured defenders Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin making progress

Arsenal expect to be able to report a clean bill of health as the group come back from international duty – and head coach Unai Emery could see his defensive choices fostered.
Premier League action will be resumed by the Gunners away to Watford live on Sky Sports, at what’s going to be Quique Sanchez Flores‘ first match in charge following his return to Vicarage Road.
Forward Nicolas Pepe had returned from the training camp of Ivory Coast with club resources moving to allay concerns within a fresh injury worry to operate on establishing his match fitness, at Deauville.
Arsenal confirmed any fitness issues had been so far indicated by none.
A club statement read:“All players that have been on international duty will have returned by Thursday morning. No global players have reported accidents during this period.
„But all global players will be assessed ahead of Sunday’s match.“
Arsenal’s upgrade on the club’s official website affirmed defender Rob Holding was“back into full training with the first team squad“ after his long-term knee issue.
Full-back Hector Bellerin, meanwhile, is also“progressing well“ with ongoing rehab from his own cruciate ligament injury suffered at the start of 2019, and“aiming to participate in complete training“ after this month.
Scotland international Kieran Tierney“continues to receive treatment and further assessments“ about the groin problem which has postponed his debut after joining from Celtic ahead of the transfer deadline.
The full-back, however, is expected to be in contention combined with defender Konstantinos Mavropanos.
Arsenal drew 2-2 ahead of the worldwide break, which abandoned them with north London rivals Tottenham.
As he was carrying out a calf problem, which isn’t anticipated to help keep him on the 27, midfielder Joe Willock withdrew in the England Under-21 team.
