“He has been working so hard to be fit for this game and let’s see where he is at today,” Arteta said on Friday morning.
“He had a couple of days off that he needed as well, but the rest [of the international break] has not been rest for him because he needed to do the treatment and train, and get ready to be available against Chelsea.
“I’m sure he wants to play. I don’t see any player there that doesn’t want to be in the starting XI.”
Arsenal beat Manchester City in their last game before the international break, but Arteta could make changes nonetheless.
