Arsenal handed Declan Rice boost

Ahead of their next outing, the Gunners have been handed some good news as Declan Rice is confident he will be fit for Arsenal’s trip to Nottingham Forest next week.

The Englishman was forced off towards the end of Saturday’s 5-0 win over Crystal Palace after complaining of tightness in his hamstring.

And while Rice will be assessed by Arsenal medical staff this week, there is confidence he will be available to face Forest next week.

Elsewhere, Thomas Partey is continuing to work his way back to full fitness, but it is unclear if he will make the squad for Forest.

Gabriel also picked up an issue in the Palace drubbing but his status for the Nottingham Forest tie is currently unclear.
