Wlliam Salbia is also in from the off.
“[Rice] wasn’t available [on Wednesday],” said Arteta. “He had to leave the London derby [early] and he hasn’t trained yet.
“We have another session in an hour or two so we’ll have more news about him today.
“Again, [Martinelli] hasn’t trained. We want him back, we need him back, but at the moment he’s not been available. Same situation [for Saka and Trossard].
“They are all in the same pool. [Saliba] as well had a knock. Fabio wasn’t involved in the last game. We have a few. We have to see and adapt to the situation because that’s a big number.
“My hope is that everybody is fit and available, because we need them with the amount of games that we have already under the belt in the last two weeks and what is coming in the next seven to 10 days. We need them, so hopefully today we get some good news.”
