Mikel Arteta was forced to be without Kieran Tierney, Fabio Vieira and Takehiro Tomiyasu for the Chelsea thrashing.
However, the Arsenal boss was able to give a potential return date for Vieira and Tomiyasu, but not Tierney.
Arteta said: “Tomi is really close to start doing some training sessions – hopefully next week and Fabio probably a little longer.
“I think he needs another week or so before he starts with the team but he’s been working hard and he’s been really unlucky to start his Arsenal career in this way, but again, he’s fitting in well.”
