Gabriel Jesus is back on the bench for Arsenal as they host Fulham in the Premier League today.
The Brazilian is yet to play this season but could feature here.
Arteta said: “We’re really happy. Obviously, it was a big blow for him after the pre-season that he had to have another surgery, but he’s looking really sharp, and trained the full week really good, so he’s ready to go.”
On whether Jesus was ready to start from the off, Arteta said: “Let’s see! It’s very good news.”
Arsenal have no fresh injuries worries, so Jurrien Timber and Mohamed Elneny are the only players missing.
Kai Havertz, Declan Rice and Martin Odegaard will continue in midfield, with Aaron Ramsdale to start in goal ahead of new signing David Raya.
Albert Sambi Lokonga, Kieran Tierney and Florin Balogun will all likely miss out while in talks to leave the club before transfer deadline day on September 1.
Starting Arsenal XI: Ramsdale; Partey, White, Saliba, Zinchenko; Odegaard, Rice, Havertz; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli
Subs: Raya, Zinchenko, Gabriel, Jorginho, Vieira, Smith Rowe, Nelson, Jesus
