Gabriel Martinelli was missing from Arsenal’s pre-PSV Eindhoven training session on Wednesday but his absence is not injury related. The Brazilian has been one of his side’s standout performers this season and there were fears the forward may have picked up a problem when he was not spotted training with the group ahead of the Europa League contest.

However, Arsenal sources have now reaffirmed that Martinelli is just feeling under the weather, which is why he sat out of the session.

There is optimism he will still be involved on Thursday when Arsenal will look to make it four wins four three in Group A – which should book their place in the knockout stages.

Martinelli already has four goals and two assists in 10 Premier League outings this term having started all of Arsenal’s top-flight matches.

However, his involvement in Europe has become more limited as Mikel Arteta looks to rest his legs by shuffling his pack.
