Following Manchester United's decision to cancel their plans for a training camp in the Gulf region, Mikel Arteta has insisted the Gunners will follow suit if their safety cannot be guaranteed.

"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 in his pre-match press conference ahead of Sheffield United .

With tension rising in the area after senior Iranian commander Qasam Soleimani was killed in a US air strike in Baghdad earlier this month, this could be a deciding factor in where Arsenal travel for their Premier League winter break.

Should Arsenal be taken to an FA Cup Replay, however, Arteta insists this will be something Arsenal just have to deal with.

Last season the Gunners flew out to Dubai to play Al-Nasr Dubai between their 3-0 Europa League win over Rennes on March 14 2019  and the 2-0 home win over Newcastle on April 1 2019. understands that the club is looking at the possibility of going to Dubai again this year near the weekend of February 8 if they do decide to go through with a mid-season trip away.

If we get two weeks (break) it’ll be brilliant, if we have to play a replay obviously we know we’re not going to have that so we have to adapt."

The Gunners may also need to ensure they avoid an FA Cup replay with Bournemouth to fully enjoy their time off.
