At London Colney, Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe, and Granit Xhaka all completed a full training session.

Due to injury and sickness, the trio missed Saturday's 3-0 Premier League loss to Liverpool, and manager Mikel Arteta was unsure whether either of them would be available for the Europa League match.



When asked if the trio was in contention to face the Czech Republic, Arteta said, "I don't know." "I can't answer that right now because I don't know." Well, it appears that Arsenal only needed a few days.

Saka, Smith Rowe, and Xhaka are all featured in a six-minute 'Inside Training' video posted to the club's official website, indicating that they will all be in contention to face Slavia Prague.

Saka was spotted in Friday's London Colney session prior to the Liverpool match, but Arteta did not risk him in attack, instead opting for Nicolas Pepe.

If the 19-year-old and Smith Rowe return to the starting XI, the Gunners will be a much better team than the one that played last weekend.

According to Manchester United legend Gary Neville, this is the case.



'You just think Ceballos, Odegaard, Pepe, Lacazette, and Aubameyang are all on the same side,' Neville explained. 'They're a little shaky when they don't have the ball, and their strengths are with it.'

'It definitely hurts Arsenal, as you can see here.'

'It's concerning to see the drop-off when players like Smith Rowe and Saka are on the field.'
