Arsenal Team News

Manager Mikel Arteta has a number of injury concerns ahead of the game with Calum Chambers (ankle), joining fellow defenders Sead Kolisinac (also ankle), Kieran Tierney (shoulder), and Sokratis Papastathopoulos (concussion) on the sidelines after the 2-1 defeat at home to Chelsea.

Hector Bellerin (hamstring), and Rob Holding (knee) could however, ease the pressure on the Gunners’ backline, having returned to full training during the Christmas period.

Dani Ceballos and Gabriel Martinelli both (hamstring) were being assessed by the club’s medical staff prior to the clash with the Blues, while Granite Xhaka missed that game due to illness.
