Arsenal have confirmed that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is out of tonight’s clash at Southampton due to personal reasons.
Our club captain travelled to the South Coast for Saturday’s clash at Saint Mary’s but returned home late in the day to support his loved ones.
It’s unclear at this point what has happened but whatever it is, we wish the striker and his family all the best.
In a further blow, it sounds like Kieran Tierney is also unlikely to feature tonight. The club’s medical team say he’s being assessed for discomfort in his right lower leg.
Calf problems are very much in fashion. Dani Ceballos and Pablo Mari are on the mend but won’t be in the matchday squad.
