I think we have to assume that the France and Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny and our England forward Danny Welbeck will not be available for either of the next two games, joining Cazorla, Chambers and Mustafi in the treatment room.
With a Europa League away tie in Belgrade and a Premier League away clash with Everton to cope with in the space of two-and-a-half days, Arsene Wenger has to decide how much to rotate and which Arsenal players should start in each game, but he does have the option to bring back Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez who he left out for the Watford game.
There were some suggestions that fatigue could have been the reason he left the striker out but we have played him soon after a long haul trip for international games before, so it must surely be down to the pair’s disappointments over Wales and Chile crashing out of the World Cup.
The fact that the pair will be nice and fresh could persuade the boss to start them against Red Star on Thursday with the idea of replacing them at some point to be ready for Everton. He could also give them a bit more time and have them on the bench if needed while giving some valuable game time to players like Wilshere, Coquelin, Walcott and Giroud who have not played much this season.
Would you save Ramsey and Alexis for Everton?
