It was business as usual at London Colney on Wednesday as Arsenal’s depleted squad trained ahead of their next match against Leicester.
Several of Unai Emery’s first-team stars are away on international duty but there was no time for rest for those who have not been selected by their respective countries.
Alexandre Lacazette, Hector Bellerin and Shkodran Mustafi were among those in training as the Gunners were put through their paces in sunny London.

Under 23 head coach Freddie Ljungberg helped first-team boss Emery during the session as a large proportion of his players will also be away on international duty.
Arsenal will go into their next Premier League match against Leicester at the Emirates Stadium on the back of nine consecutive victories.
Since losing their opening two games to Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsenal have beaten the likes of Everton, Watford and Fulham.
Arsenal hit five goals past Fulham in their last outing with Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netting doubles in their side’s 5-1 win at Craven Cottage.
Aaron Ramsey scored the other goal but his future remains up in the air with Manchester United and Liverpool now keeping tabs on the midfielder.
The Evening Standard believe the Premier League duo are considering a cut-price deal to sign Ramsey in January.
Ramsey’s current deal at the Emirates expires next summer and talks have broken down over a new contract.
