Mertesacker (illness) was left off the 18-man roster for Saturday's game against Chelsea.

Mertesacker has been held out by an illness for a month and his inability to play Saturday is not all that surprising despite the slight glimmer of hope he'd make his long-awaited return against Chelsea. He'll wait another week while Gabriel continues to fulfill starting duties.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mertesacker (illness) is questionable for Saturday's match against Chelsea.

Mertesacker has missed nearly a month due to the ailment, and with Gabriel playing well in his absence, it's unclear if he will slot back into his starting spot alongside Laurent Koscielny if he is deemed fit.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Mertesacker is still sick, and he could miss Saturday's match against Newcastle.

Mertesacker was unable to play last weekend against Liverpool due to the ailment, which was made worse when Laurent Koscielny was ruled out with a back injury. Neither player has trained yet this week, so it's certainly possible that Arsenal could use Calum Chambers and Gabriel once again.
