Arsenal have confirmed that Sead Kolasinac has suffered a significant injury to his right shoulder during the game with Everton.
The left-back, restored to the starting lineup by Mikel Arteta, lasted just 18 minutes on Sunday before being replaced by Bukayo Saka. He looked in a lot of pain as he limped off and his shirt was used as a makeshift sling.
The club say he needs to see a specialist this week and they’ve not yet put a date on his return. He’s definitely out of tomorrow’s game with Olympiacos.
It’s terrible luck for a player who has suffered a series of problems this season including the off-field security incident and a recent ankle problem.
Saka will likely deputise tomorrow and for a couple more weeks with Kieran Tierney still working his way back to full fitness. The Scot has resumed group sessions but won’t undertake full sessions for another week.
Cedric Soares is sill doing gym work and is working to a similar return date as Tierney. Calum Chambers is continuing his rehab from ACL surgery and won’t be back in action until next season.
