Arsenal have listed ten first-team players who will be partaking in international action with their countries over the next week, leaving some fans fearing injuries to key stars.

Bernd Leno, Granit Xhaka, Dani Ceballos and Sead Kolasinac have all been included in squads for Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Meanwhile others, such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Lucas Torreira and Nicolas Pepe are all heading further afield.

With youngsters such as Eddie Nketiah and Matteo Guendouzi also featuring at U21 level, Unai Emery will be hoping all of them return back fit and healthy for important challenges ahead.

With a heavy upcoming schedule across three competitions, the Gunners can't afford to have many players sitting on the sidelines.

 

Sheffield United are first up in the Premier League after the break, with Europa League and League Cup action sandwiched in between other league fixtures against Crystal Palace and Wolves.

Emery's side are within touching distance of Man City in the league table and will be looking to leapfrog them into second position over the next few weeks.

The international breaks are a notoriously worrisome time for club coaches and supporters, especially for those who are heading around the world to take part in friendly action.
