Arsenal appear to be preparing to be without at least one key player in Sunday’s Premier League showdown with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Gunners have been troubled by injuries to important stars in recent seasons but the amount of players sidelined so far this campaign appeared to have decreased, helping the team put together a sublime unbeaten run.

However, the injury worries have returned heading into the much-anticipated north London derby at the Emirates stadium.

There have been doubts over the fitness of four players – Nacho Monreal, Hector Bellerin, Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla – after they were omitted from the squad which traveled to Ludogorets in midweek.

According to the Metro, three of the players with injury concerns – Monreal, Bellerin and Walcott – all managed to train today and look ready to play on Sunday.

However, Cazorla is now likely to be ruled out for the clash with Tottenham after missing Saturday morning’s training session as his Achilles injury continues to set him back.
