Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news update ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Brighton.
The Gunners have some injury worries to key first team players with Mesut Ozil ruled out, having already been given a pass from international duty, and serious doubts over Laurent Koscielny.
The vice-captain has been struggling with an Achilles injury and this is currently causing him problems.
“Mesut Ozil will not be available for Sunday,” said Wenger. “Very short-term. He is not far, but he is not enough for Sunday.
“We have a doubt about Laurent Koscielny unfortunately and he will have a test tomorrow. It’s an Achilles problem, it’s ongoing.
“I think everybody else should be available. Sead Kolasinac had some problems, but he is available. That’s basically it.”
Alex Iwobi is a possibility, having missed the last few games with injury, and the Gunners will be looking for three points as we head into the Interlull.
