Injury News at Arsenal Reveals One Doubt for Everton Clash
Henrikh Mhkitaryan | Arsenal.com

Injury news at Arsenal is one hell of an update that sends cold shivers down my spine. Whenever it was time for Arsene Wenger’s press conferences either before or after any game, I used to fear that we would get another ugly one while hoping that positive updates of returning ones show up.

Fitness issues upon issues were the trend back in the years. Hardly will a game go by without we recording either a long-term or a minor injury – we always had the ill luck of losing important players to the injury room.

The story has changed a bit this season. With the exit of Arsene Wenger, a number of changes were made and this included the reshuffling of the Arsenal medical crew. Many had questioned the competence of the previous ones due to the frequency at which players got injured and find it hard to make a return in time. So far, there had been an improvement on the injury front. It will be logical to attribute it to the new era, right?

 As we look forward to our game with Everton on Sunday, the club's medical crew through the official Arsenal website have informed us that we will likely be without one of our on for the weekend game.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the hero of Thursday night who provided two assists in our 4-2 win over Vorskla Poltava in the Europa League is a doubt for our sixth Premier League game.

According to the revelation, the former Manchester United star is having an issue on his right ankle and is still being watched closely.

It is nothing serious judging from the injury news update but there is also no certainty Mhiki will be fit enough to participate when Everton visit the Emirates Stadium. His involvement will be dependent on how quick he shakes off the problem.

Four others, Sead Kolasinac, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Laurent Koscielny and Carl Jenkinson are all making progress in their recovery from various injury problems.

Koscielny has already begun light ball work which is a clear indication that soon, probably by November, he will link up with the rest of his teammates in full training. We wish them all fast recoveries in their rehabilitation.
