Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe is set for yet another spell on the sidelines.
The home grown talent has struggled for game time in the Premier League in the past two seasons.
Manager Mikel Arteta revealed over the weekend that Smith Rowe suffered an ankle injury in training.
Arteta told Sky Sports: “Emile turned his ankle in training so he’s not fit to play.”
Smith Rowe has been a peripheral figure under Arteta this term, even when fully fit.
He missed the team’s 6-0 win over West Ham United away from home on Sunday.
