Arsenal have confirmed that Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac, Hector Bellerin and Sokratis are being assessed ahead of tomorrow’s match with Liverpool with the medical team seemingly unable / unwilling to definitively rule out the injured foursome.
Monreal and Kolasinac continue to nurse hamstring problems picked up in training, while Bellerin’s thigh issue, which forced him off at half time of last weekend’s match with Crystal Palace, is undergoing further rehab. Meanwhile, Sokratis, who looked to have recovered from an ankle injury problem sustained on international duty, is again being looked at.
The Gunners will definitely be without Matteo Guendouzi, suspended following his mid-week red card against Blackpool, Mohamed Elneny, Laurent Koscielny and Dinos Mavropanos.
In all likelihood we could line up with a back four of Xhaka, Holding, Mustafi and Lichtsteiner with Ramsey and Torreira sitting deep in midfield. We’ll see. Perhaps Unai Emery will share more details in his pre-game press conference this afternoon.
