'Here we go', '5-0 win': Some Arsenal fans buzzing with early team news ahead of Norwich clash
Some Arsenal fans have welcomed Thursday’s team update ahead of this weekend’s return to Premier League action.
The Gunners confirmed that Gabriel Magalhaes, Ben White, Thomas Partey and Eddie Nketiah are all available for selection.
Gabriel has not made a competitive Gunners appearance this season due to a knee injury.
However, he made his return to action last month as he played 45 minutes for the Arsenal Under-23s against Tottenham.
White is also available for selection after serving a period of self-isolation following a positive covid test, and could partner Gabriel in defence.
Partey, like Gabriel, has yet to play competitively for Arsenal this season due to an ankle injury.
Nketiah was also nursing an ankle problem, but both are now back in full training and available for selection.
This comes as a big boost for Arteta, whose depleted charges are yet to pick up a single point in the Premier League.
And Arsenal fans are pleased to see who’s back for Saturday’s Emirates meeting with Norwich:

In terms of absences, Mohamed Elneny could miss up to three weeks with a hamstring strain and Granit Xhaka is suspended.
Albert Sambi Lokonga picked up a knock on Belgium duty but it’s reportedly not serious and he should be available this weekend.
