Arsenal are a pretty fit squad right now with Emile Smith Rowe, Jurrien Timber and Thomas Partey the only current injury concerns. Smith Rowe missed out on the 1-0 win over Brentford, a match that marked the 200th game in charge for manager Mikel Arteta.
Smith Rowe, who is battling a knee issue, could be involved against RC Lens on Wednesday night. It remains to be seen however, and Arteta could provide more insight into his condition during his press conference tomorrow.

Timber however us done for the season, so we won’t making any more Ke$ha feat. Pitbull references any more this term. (Probably a good thing as that song is actually more than a decade old already- wow that’s wild!). Partey won’t be back until the calendar flips to 2024. Fabio Vieira is kind of a fringe player, but he could get some tick here as he was suspended for domestic play, over the weekend, but his eligible for continental competition here.
