Arsenal press conference LIVE: Mikel Arteta on Gabriel Jesus return, Tierney transfer and Fulham


Hello and welcome along to live coverage of the Arsenal press conference ahead of the Premier League fixture against Fulham.

Gunners manager Mikel Arteta is set to face the media this afternoon where he will be previewing the London derby at the Emirates Stadium as his side aim to maintain their 100 per cent winning start to the new season and move to the top of the table - albeit potentially for a few hours.

The big news for Arsenal is the return to training of Gabriel Jesus. The Brazilian has not featured at all this season after undergoing a minor knee operation at the beginning of the month but having taken part in yesterday's session it could be that he will be available for selection so expect an update on the striker and the rest of the squad.

With the summer transfer window closing exactly one week from today, Arteta could be asked about his plans to dip into the market for another signing as well as the latest on Kieran Tierney and Folarin Balogun who are closing in on moves to Real Sociedad and AS Monaco respectively.

You can hear what Arteta has to say on all these issues with's Arsenal writers Kaya Kaynak and Tashan Deniran-Alleyne in the live blog below.
