Arsenal defender Ainsley Maitland-Niles has suffered a "small fracture" to his left leg and will be out for six to eight weeks.

Meanwhile, defender Carl Jenkinson is expected to be out for a similar length of time as his colleague because of "a significant sprain to his right ankle".

Maitland-Niles was selected by Unai Emery for the head coach's first Premier League game in charge but limped out of the action against Manchester City before half-time following a heavy collision with Kyle Walker. It is a boost for the Gunners who have lost the two left backs to injury with Kolasinac set to be on the sidelines for two months with a knee injury as well as Niles.

Arsenal also said captain Laurent Koscielny is now expected back in training in November, with earlier estimates having aimed for a December return.

Jillette said Trump would ask male cast members "if he'd rather have sex with this woman or that woman", for example. If Donald Trump had not become president, I would tell you all the stories.

The 20-year-old suffered the injury in a challenge with Kuyle Walker during Arsenal's opening Premier League clash against champions Manchester City, a 2-0 defeat last Sunday.

France worldwide Laurent Koscielny, who missed his nation's World Cup-winning campaign with an Achilles tendon tear, is on the mend and is expected to return to training in November.

Finally, the Gunners confirmed that both Nacho Monreal and Danny Welbeck have returned to full training and must, therefore, be in consideration for the weekend's derby against Chelsea.
