Arsenal are still considering a warm-weather training camp in the Middle East with head coach Mikel Arteta insisting the club will listen to any relevant security advice before travelling.

“We were looking at the Middle East but that is definitely not going to happen.” With the two-week breaks staggered to ensure there is still Premier League football every weekend, Arsenal are set to play at Burnley on February 2 and return to action at home to Newcastle on February 16.



Manchester United were reportedly close to heading to Qatar during their own two-week break, a new step introduced for all by the Premier League this season to ease fixture pile-up following the festive period.



“So we could change from one scenario to the other, which is a little bit bizarre, but we cannot.

But, speaking earlier in the week, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed growing political tensions in the region mean he will now instruct his resting players to stay closer to home.

“If there is one thing that worries me it’s not on the football pitch, there are other things that worry me more than football.

“We talked about different options in this break to go away and live together a bit in a different environment with better weather conditions and a little bit away from here,” he said when asked about Manchester United’s aborted plans.
