On Friday, Arsenal provided a new injury and fitness update on Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac, Petr Cech and Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Both Monreal and Kolasinac have minor hamstring injuries and will be assessed ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Selhurst Park on Sunday. Cech and Maitland-Niles have now returned to full training. Laurent Koscielny and Dinos Mavropanos are still yet to return to full training. With possibly four new available players for the game, it provides Unai Emery with a lot to think about that Arsenal fans have been discussing.
We’ve had an update from our medical team following our return to London
Here’s how our squad is looking ahead of our trip to Selhurst Park on Sunday

With that in mind, let’s take a look at the fans’ thoughts on the update.
Multiple fans feel that Petr Cech should remain on the bench, which would allow Bernd Leno to continue his run in between the sticks.
KEEP CECH ON THE BENCH !!! pic.twitter.com/s9WxGgx1QW

Loool I forgot Cech existed because Leno has stolen the spotlight

Other fans are glad to see the return of one of their left-back options, and possibly all three.
Xhaka at LB was fun while it lasted. But plz don't let Zaha square up against him

We need Either Nacho, Saed or Niles. They all can't be out. Sad pic.twitter.com/eEvscivDUf
