Arsene Wenger has provided a team news update ahead of Sunday’s trip to Old Trafford, and there’s good news regarding Man United old boy Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The Armenian international has been sidelined since the 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow earlier this month, having damaged knee ligaments in a challenge.
However, speaking ahead of Sunday’s game, Wenger said, “We have no new problems. Mkhitaryan is available. Elneny is out, Cazorla too of course.
“Everyone else is OK.”
The big question is how much the manager is going to rotate his squad. The last thing we need are more injuries before next week’s game in Madrid, while at the same time putting out a side that is competitive for a game against United.
It’s going to be a difficult balancing act, especially with the second leg of the Atletico tie more challenging that it should have been after last night’s disappointing 1-1 draw.
We’ll find out what he does on Sunday.
