Arsenal's boss Unai Emery has revealed that Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin are edging closer to a first team return following the 1-0 win against Newcastle at St James' Park.
Both players sustained serious knee ligament damage last season, missing the second half of the Gunners' campaign as they reached the Europa League final, having finished fifth in the Premier League.
"I want to have very competitive players in each position, with David Luiz, with Holding when he is coming to help us, training regularly and playing minutes. He is going to play tomorrow for the Under-23s," Emery said, as quoted by football.London.
Currently, Bellerin, Holding, Tierney and Konstantinos Mavropanos are on the treatment table, though all four are now expected to return within the next couple of months
On the field, Arsenal got their Premier League campaign off to a winning start, keeping a rare clean sheet away from home as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's second half goal fired the Gunners to a narrow 1-0 win.
