There was no sign of Nacho Monreal or Sead Kolasinac as the Arsenal squad trained at London colney on Saturday afternoon ahead of Sunday’s trip to Crystal Palace.

Both Monreal and Kolasinac have missed our last two matches against Leicester City and Sporting Lisbon over the past week after suffering hamstring injuries in training last weekend.

Unai Emery said a decision would be made over their availability at training today but it looks like the duo will miss out once again as there was no sign of them in the official photos from today’s session at London Colney.

Hopefully Arsenal are just being clever and have not release any photos of Monreal and/or Kolasinac to keep Palace guessing but we’ve usually published images of doubtful players in the past so it doesn’t look good.

It would be a huge blow if Monreal and Kolasinac do miss the Palace game as Stephan Lichtsteiner didn’t look comfortable at left-back against Leicester and Granit Xhaka was forced to fill-in at Sporting Lisbon.

There was some good news as Laurent Koscielny continued to build on his fitness today as he took part in full training with the Frenchman edging closer to making his comeback from an Achilles injury.

We head to Selhurst Park tomorrow afternoon looking to make it 12 consecutive wins in all competitions and Emery is expected to recall the likes of Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette, Hector Bellerin and Lucas Torreira after they were rested on Thursday night.

Here are some photos from today’s training session:

    CP will be desperate to score and win otherwise they will drop to the
    periphery of the rz.They will go in at 100/150/kmph and will try to intimidate the gunners from playing their usual game.
    Zaha could cause problems if he is not marked. I feel more confident going into this one and against Pool. The reason is obvious.
    Emery doesn’t leave the barn doo wide open like the fm who was at the wrong of big defeats. Who can ever forget the 8-2 mauling.
    Expect the gunners to win 2-0.
    I think the defence is gradually improving and shd be able to handle Salah and co.
