Arsenal take on Atletico Madrid at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final.
Having been without Mesut Ozil, Petr Cech, Jack Wilshere, Sead Kolasinac and Henrikh Mkhitaryan for the 4-1 win over West Ham on Sunday, Arsene Wenger provided the latest team news update for what is our most important European game in years.
Speaking at his press confer, “Mkhitaryan is not back in the squad, and Mohamed Elneny, certainly for the rest of the season.
“He has a little, little chance to play at Huddersfield. He will be available for Egypt for the World Cup but not any more for Arsenal.”
Cech, Kolasinac, Ozil and Wilshere were all in full training, so we’re assuming they’ll be available for selection tomorrow.
There were no questions as to how we might approach this game tactically, although it seems as if we’ll stick with a back four.
