But Arteta is likely to revert back to a full-strength lineup for the Premier League visit of Villa, with the XI he picked to start at Old Trafford expected to play.
Defenders Gabriel Magalhaes and Rob Holding were given a rest on Thursday night, while Kieran Tierney only played the final 10 minutes.
In midfield, Thomas Partey was rested too but he should come in along with Mohamed Elneny – who was impressive at Old Trafford.
In attack, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will captain the side after getting the night off against Molde too.
Arsenal predicted line-up (3-4-3): Leno; Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Bellerin, Elneny, Partey, Saka; Willian, Lacazette, Aubameyang
