Hector Bellerin has recovered from a minor groin problem in time for the Gunners’ trip to West Brom this weekend.
Arsene Wenger revealed he will monitor Laurent Koscielny, conceding that the defender was deeply affected by recent off-pitch events in Paris.
Gabriel is likely to partner Per Mertesacker in the event that Koscielny doesn’t feature.
In midfield, Aaron Ramsey, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott are all still ruled out through injury, with Joel Campbell poised to retain his place on the right.
Alexis Sanchez will be assessed after a long haul flight back from South America but is expected to start on the opposite wing.
Up top, Olivier Giroud seems certain to lead the line in Walcott’s continued absence. Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky remain sidelined through injury.
