The Gunners have confirmed that Granit Xhaka is still an injury doubt ahead of the match and is having his groin strain assessed ahead of the match.
Monday’s match will also be the first of the two-game ban for Sokratis Papastathopoulos after the Greek defender picked up ten Premier League bookings.
It’s going to be a big test for Unai Emery and Arsenal. The Gunners play another match away from home knowing that they’ll need to pick up all three points if they are to keep up with the race for the title. Let’s hope things go to plan and Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Granit Xhaka won’t be missed.
