Centre-back Laurent Koscielny returned to the Arsenal team against Napoli, but teammate Granit Xhaka was still unavailable. Xhaka is a doubt for Monday night's game as a mystery injury picked up on international duty continues to sideline him.
Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, and Danny Welbeck are all long-term injuries for Arsenal and all remain out.
Gerard Deulofeu nearly single-handedly led Watford past Wolves in the FA Cup semifinal. He came off the bench to score twice, but injured his ankle and had to be subbed off. He is a slight doubt for Arsenal's arrival.
Full-backs Jose Holebas and Kiko Femenia are both slight doubts due to knocks. Meanwhile, Tom Cleverly and Adalberto Penaranda are expected to miss the game.
