Arsenal team news: Fresh injury blow confirmed, 3 players could miss Frankfurt clash
Arsenal have confirmed a fresh injury blow ahead of tomorrow night’s Europa League clash with Eintracht Frankfurt. See details here
Arsenal will be looking to wrap-up top spot in Europa League Group F with a win over Eintracht Frankfurt at the Emirates on Thursday night.
Ahead of the game, the club have issued a team news and injury update on Arsenal.com and confirmed a fresh blow with the news that Hector Bellerin has picked up a hamstring problem.
The Spaniard has only recently returned to first team action after overcoming a serious knee ligament injury and was substituted during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Southampton at the weekend.
It appears Bellerin may have been suffering from a tight hamstring as the club have confirmed the full-back will need to be assessed ahead of Thursday night’s Europa League clash with Frankfurt.
Sead Kolasinac is also a doubt after missing the draw with Southampton due to a hamstring injury that he suffered while away with the Bosnian squad during the international break earlier this month.
Kolasinac didn’t train today so he’s unlikely to be involved against Frankfurt and Dani Ceballos is certain to miss out tomorrow night as he’s still recovering from a hamstring problem that he sustained against Vitoria at the start of November.
Here is what the update on Arsenal.com said:
Left hamstring. Sustained during the Vitoria SC (a) match on November 6. Aiming to return to full training mid-December.
Left hamstring. Returned from international duty with tight left hamstring. Being assessed ahead of Thursday’s match.
Tight hamstring. Being assessed ahead of Thursday’s match.
Bellerin and Kolasinac are unlikely to be risked against Frankfurt but thankfully there injuries don’t sound too serious so they could be available for Sunday’s Premier League trip to Norwich City.
Arsenal head into tomorrow’s game sitting four points clear at the top of Group F after drawing with Vitoria last time out in the Europa League so a win over Frankfurt at the Emirates would book our place in the knockout stages as group winners.
