On Friday, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta did not rule out Martinelli making the squad. But the winger was not pictured with the rest of the squad in their final training session on Saturday, and is not involved.
“With Gabi we are still assessing him and so let’s see whether he can make the game or not,” Arteta told reporters on Friday morning.
“Thomas [Partey] for sure is out. And the rest hopefully available, we still have two training sessions but there were no big issues in midweek.”
Leandro Trossard was expected to keep his place on the left wing for Arsenal against Tottenham after scoring two goals in his last two games, but he too misses out. Gabriel Jesus starts out wide, with Eddie Nketiah through the middle.
