The Arsenal medical team have posted their latest fitness update and it sounds as though Granit Xhaka and Laurent Koscielny are still doubts for the clash with Napoli on Thursday.
Unai Emery touched on the status of the duo after Sunday’s defeat at Everton hinting that the Frenchman, who is suffering from a bruised left foot, looked closer to a return than the Swiss.
Perhaps we’ll get more details later today when the Spaniard faces the cameras in his pre-game press conference.
Xhaka’s absence, the result of a groin injury picked up during the Interlull, could be offset by a return for Lucas Torreira who isn’t suspended in Europe.
In defence, Nacho Monreal, Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis will likely make up a back three if our club captain isn’t able to play a part.
