Rumours this evening suggest that Granit Xhaka has not travelled with the Arsenal squad for tomorrow’s game against Man City at the Etihad.
The suggestion comes from the Manchester Evening News who, weirdly like stalkers, pictured the squad arriving at their hotel this evening.
They also say that there’s no sign of Henrikh Mkhitaryan or Ainsley Maitland-Niles, which means that either Stephan Lichtsteiner or Carl Jenkinson will play right back or right wing back depending on the formation that Unai Emery selects.
Laurent Koscielny is in the squad after Romelu Lukaku tried to kick the side of his face off, and Mesut Ozil, often not included in difficult games north of the Watford Gap, is also in the squad.
The Gunners have dropped back down to the fifth in the table after Chelsea’s 5-0 win over Huddersfield today, so matching that result – which should be no problem at all – will see us move back into the Champions League places.
