Arsenal team news: Update on Aubameyang, Ramsey, Holding & more ahead of Leicester
Here is an update on the fitness of Aubameyang, Ramsey, Holding and more ahead of Arsenal’s trip to the King Power to take on Leicester.
Arsenal will be looking to get back to winning ways after a disappointing week when we take on Leicester City at the King Power on Sunday afternoon.
Ahead of the game, the club have issued a team news and injury update on Arsenal.com which includes the latest on the fitness of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Aaron Ramsey, Denis Suarez, Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Danny Welbeck.
Aubameyang was forced to miss Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat at Wolves on Wednesday night after undergoing a minor procedure on a sinus issue and the Gabon international will need to be assessed to see if he’s ready to return against Leicester this weekend.
Ramsey has sat out our last two games due to a hamstring injury that he sustained during our Europa League victory over Napoli and the Welshman has once again been ruled out of action on Sunday.
Unai Emery’s options in midfield are further limited by the fact that Suarez also remains on the sidelines as the on-loan Barcelona man continues to recover from a groin injury that’s hampered him in recent weeks.
Obviously Arsenal will still be without the services of Bellerin as he’s continuing his rehabilitation in the gym following a serious knee ligament injury but Holding has joined Welbeck in undertaking some on-field work as they bid to overcome their long-term injuries.
The team news update on Arsenal.com read:
Sinus. Pierre had a small procedure on a sinus which went well and he is being assessed ahead of Sunday’s match at Leicester.
Left hamstring. Continues to receive treatment and further assessment. Will miss Sunday’s match at Leicester.
Groin. Continues to receive treatment and further assessment. Will miss Sunday’s match at Wolves.
Left knee. Continuing with gym based rehabilitation and strengthening post-surgery.
Left knee. Started on-field rehabilitation.
Right ankle. Continuing on-field rehabilitation, conditioning and ball work.
Let’s hope Aubameyang is passed fit as he was missed on Wednesday night and Arsenal have to beat Leicester this weekend if we’re to finish above Chelsea and Manchester United to snatch fourth place.
We currently sit fifth in the table – one point behind Chelsea and two clear of United – and with our rivals playing each other at Old Trafford on Sunday, we have the perfect opportunity to put the pressure on by beating Leicester at the King Power.
