Sead Kolasinac’s shoulder injury will keep him sidelined for four weeks, according to the latest medical bulletin from the club.
The Bosnia & Herzegovina international suffered a ‘significant’ injury to the joint in the win against Everton.
His shirt was used as a makeshift sling as he walked off the pitch raising concerns of a dislocation. Thankfully, he’s escaped that but he’ll still need some time to recover.
Kieran Tierney, who did suffer a shoulder dislocation in December, won’t be available for this evening’s FA Cup clash with Portsmouth but he will return to full training this week. At a time when we’ve leant heavily on Bukayo Saka, the return of the Scot is a timely boost.
In further good news, Cedric Soares is expected to return to training next week. The Portuguese will then be expected to challenge Hector Bellerin for the right-back slot.
