Arsenal are set for a boost after the international break.
Arsenal will be getting a major boost to their fragile defence after the international break this month.
Kieran Tierney joined the Gunners from Celtic in August for £25million but has yet to play for his new team as he is still nursing a hip injury.
According to PhysioRoom, the left-back will be returning to action on September 30 and that means he could become part of the Premier League match against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Arsenal recently shared a statement claiming the Scotland international is making a lot of progress and is expected to join full training this month.
The post read: “[Tierney] Continues to receive treatment and further assessments.
“Progressing well and aiming to participate in full training in September.”
Hector Bellerin has been sidelined since January due to a cruciate ligament rupture.
However, Bellerin is pencilled down for a return in time for the match against United as well.
Dinos Mavropanos has been out with a groin injury and could make a full recovery by September 30 as well.
However, Transfermarkt claim the centre-back will be out until October 3 and may not be available for selection until the Europa League clash with Standard Liege.
That would give Arsenal an important boost in defence as they have so far conceded six goals in four matches.
Joe Willock is also expected to be back by September 15 after nursing a calf injury.
That means Willock will be eligible for Arsenal’s next match with Watford after the international break on Sunday at Vicarage Road.
They will then face Eintracht Frankfurt in their first Europa League game of the season on Thursday.
