Lucas Torreira and Mesut Ozil are both available for selection for tomorrow’s game against Everton, however, Hector Bellerin and Sokratis look likely to miss out.
Torreira missed the 1-0 win over Olympiacos through illness but has now recovered and Ozil didn’t travel to Athens as his wife is expecting a baby.
The latest bulletin from the Arsenal medical team reveals that Bellerin was left in London as a precaution with a tight groin but he’s on the mend. All the same, we’d be surprised if he’s risked.
It could spell game time at right-back for Ainsley-Maitland Niles because Sokratis is also struggling. The Greek, who went down with cramp late in the game on Thursday, has apparently picked up a knee injury and continues to be assessed.
When you consider that Cedric Soares, Kieran Tierney and Calum Chambers are also sidelined, it’s fair to say we’re not having much luck with anyone who plays as a full-back.
