Brazilian manager Adenor Leonardo Bacchi (popularly known as Tite) was initially concerned about Neymar after he took a hit during practice earlier this week—but even though he took a while to recover, he’ll be back out there soon enough. 

Astonishingly enough, despite Arsenal’s poor performance in previous games this season—their three Brazilians (Gabriel Jesus [forward], Gabriel Afonso da Silva Magalhães [midfielder], and Gabriel de Souza Martinello [defender]) won’t be playing due to injuries from early clashes in the season.
