Arsenal have doubts over Henrikh Mkhitaryan ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League clash with Burnley at the Emirates.
In latest bulletin from the medical team its been revealed that he has picked up an ankle problem and is being assessed ahead of what is a must-win fixture after two successive defeats.
The defensive issues faced by Unai Emery haven’t been eased by the continued absence of Shkodran Mustafi (hamstring) and Hector Bellerin (calf) who are due to return to training in a week and two weeks respectively.
Emile Smith Rowe has a hip injury, while Dinos Mavropanos continues his rehabilitation from a groin problem but won’t be back to provide cover over the festive period.
If Mkhitaryan does miss out, it would increase the spotlight on Mesut Ozil who was left out of the squad for the North London derby on Wednesday. Unai Emery is due to meet the press later today and you can be sure he’ll be asked about the enigmatic German playmaker.
We’ll have all the news from the press conference here later on.
