Arsenal are aiming to get over their North London derby dissapointment with a domestic double-header this week. Drawing against Tottenham Hotspur was hardly ideal but Mikel Arteta's must brush that aside as the fixtures are coming thick and fast.
Firstly, Arsenal travel across the capital to take on Brentford in the Carabao Cup. The Bees have suffered back-to-back defeats in the Premier League but claiming a cup scalp could provide some solace to Thomas Frank and Co. Arsenal then face Bournemouth on the south coast aiming to get their title charge back on track.
Here are your Arsenal evening headlines for Tuesday, September 26, which includes an injury update on Declan Rice's back injury.
Rice injury boost
Arsenal have received a massive boost after it emerged that Rice's injury sustained against Tottenham Hotspur is not serious. The England international had to be withdrawn at half time during Sunday's North London Derby with what Mikel Arteta confirmed was a back problem.
«He had some discomfort in his back,» Arteta said after the game. «He was telling us during the first half that he was uncomfortable. When we assessed him at half time he could not continue so we had to change him.”
Now though football.london understands that after assessment it has emerged that Rice's injury is a minor one. The 24-year-old is still in discomfort and unlikely to be risked for Wednesday night's Carabao Cup clash with Brentford. He will be treated over the next few days though and could return to the squad for Saturday's Premier League trip to Bournemouth.
