Arsenal boss Unai Emery looks set to be without teenager Reiss Nelson after the England Under-21 international has reportedly been ruled out until November.
Nelson has successfully managed to force his way into the club’s first-team set-up this season having impressed in the Bundesliga with Hoffenheim in 2018-19.
But the Evening Standard report that he will now miss the next few weeks with a knee injury, which has forced him to withdraw from England duty.

Nelson has made six appearances across all competitions this season and has posted one goal and two assists as he continues his ascent.
He got one assist in the recent rout over Standard Liege in the Europa League and the injury comes at a time when he was beginning to show some form.
The issue is not believed to be incredibly serious but it comes as the latest setback for Emery as he looks to step up their bid for a top-four finish.
Arsenal are one point off champions Manchester City, who sit second in the Premier League, after eight games.
