Away from the pitch with a thigh injury, the Austrian striker could be back sooner than expected.
Early indications suggested that Arnautovic would be out for at least two months, making a return at the end of November likely, but things have gone better than expected in the Lombardy capital. As Calciomercato.com points out, Arnautovic’s recovery is progressing positively and it is hoped that he will now be back in Simone Inzaghi’s team for their away clash against Atalanta on November 4. No risks will be taken with the 34-year-old striker, but it is clear that he is ahead of schedule and will be back on the pitch before the end-of-November estimate.
