“This successful surgery took place in London in the past few days and Emile’s rehabilitation programme is already underway. We are hopeful that Emile will return to full training in December.

“Everyone at the club will now be supporting and working hard with Emile to get him back on the pitch as soon as possible.”

 Speaking about Smith Rowe’s issue following the incident at Old Trafford, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said: “I’m concerned about the fact that we don’t have him available and when he’s been trying to train he’s not been feeling 100% or pain free.

“This is the main concern. We have to find a solution to that and we are trying to do so.”

The Gunners are leading the Premier League table and will host North London rival Tottenham in the Premier League.
