Team News: Arsenal Provide Injury Update On Ramsey, Ozil, Mustafi & More

By on December 12, 2018


Arsenal have provided a full team news and injury update ahead of our final Europa League group stage game with Qarabag on Thursday night. 

The club have confirmed a huge boost with the news that Aaron Ramsey is back in full training and is available for selection after recovering from an ankle injury that he sustained during the 2-2 draw with Manchester United last week.

In a double boost, Arsenal have also revealed that Mesut Ozil is back in contention after overcoming a niggling back injury that’s kept the German international out of our last four matches.

However, Shkodran Mustafi is a doubt after picking up a hamstring injury during the 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town last weekend and the German centre-back will need to be assessed by the medical team.

Our options in the middle of the defence are limited right now as Rob Holding is due to undergo surgery on his knee ligament injury later this week and won’t play again this season while Dinos Mavropanos has still not returned to full training due to a troublesome groin injury.

The final update from Arsenal was on Danny Welbeck and obviously the England forward is still on the sidelines as he’s facing a long road to recovery from a broken ankle that will keep him out for the rest of the season.

The update on read:

Aaron Ramsey
Fit and has returned to full training following ankle injury.

Mesut Ozil
Fit and has returned to full training following back injury.

Rob Holding
Left knee – anterior cruciate ligament injury. Surgical repair will take place later this week.

Shkodran Mustafi
Hamstring. Being assessed ahead of Qarabag (h) on Thursday, December 13.

Dinos Mavropanos
Groin injury. Expected to return to full training in December.

Danny Welbeck
Right ankle. Recovering after surgery.

Unai Emery is expected to name a severely weakened side against Qarabag on Thursday night as we’ve already secured top spot in the group so our key men should all be rested ahead of Sunday’s trip to Southampton.

With Sokratis and Mustafi suspended for the game this weekend, it will be interesting to see whether Emery risks Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal against Qarabag tomorrow night.
