While a section of players tested positive for Covid-19 including Rowe. Keeping in mind that Lacazette and Nketiah are running down there contracts. With just less than six months remaining in their current deals.

An attacking trio of Saka, Vlahovic and Gabriel Martinelli may be able to score goals for the Londoners.
