Granit Xhaka and Pablo Mari will miss Arsenal’s clash with West Brom at the Emirates tomorrow evening.
The Swiss international dropped out of Thursday’s 0-0 draw with Villarreal after sustaining an unspecified injury in the warm up. TV pictures appeared to show someone stamping on his foot in a pre-game drill, but in the latest update from the medical team on the official site, it seems he has suffered a groin strain.
Meanwhile, Mari twisted his ankle during the game, and although he carried on after some treatment, he won’t be available for tomorrow.
David Luiz continues to receive treatment for a hamstring strain, and beyond that there don’t appear to be any other issues for Mikel Arteta to contend with.
A win for the Gunners tomorrow would condemn Sam Allardyce to relegation, so for those saying there’s nothing left to play for this season, think again!
