Hector Bellerin and David Luiz will miss tonight’s clash with Crystal Palace and Granit Xhaka is a doubt.
Arsenal’s medical team report that Bellerin bruised the bone in his lower left leg in last week’s win over Chelsea. The right-back came on for Bukayo Saka just past the hour mark but had to be subbed himself in the closing stages.
David Luiz’s chances of making one final appearance for the Gunners appear to be hanging by a thread. The Brazilian is trying to work his way back from a hamstring injury but the clock is ticking.
In better news, Granit Xhaka is making progress in his recovery from a groin problem. The Swiss midfielder was spotted in first team training yesterday but is unlikely to be risked tonight.
