Arsenal are currently in Dubai for their one-week winter break as they prepare for their next Premier League match against Newcastle.
The break also came at a good time as new signings Cedric Soares and Pablo Mari will be integrated into the team ahead of a busy schedule.
A number of players are also making a return following spells on the sidelines with various injuries and we look at the latest injury news ahead of the Newcastle tie.
Tierney suffered a dislocated shoulder after just 29 minutes against West Ham but is making good progress in his journey to recovery.
He had sessions with Mikel Arteta in Dubai and shared an update on his progress. He is not expected to be back next week, but his latest update is positive news for Arteta.
Soares picked an injury when he last featured for Southampton against Crystal Palace and is yet to fully recover.
He will have to wait for quite sometime before making his Arsenal debut as he is a few weeks away from full recovery.
Kolasinac has struggled with a thigh injury in recent weeks but is said to have overcome it and should be rearing to go against the Magpies.
He was expected to be part of the team away to Burnley but was kept out as a precautionary.
Saka was withdrawn at halftime in the Gunners' last match against Burnley but is expected to be ready for the next assignment.
