Arsenal Latest on Double Injury Blow Ahead of Napoli Clash

koscielny and xhaka injury latest napoli

There are no high hopes for Arsenal going by what the medical crew have released ahead of the Europa League clash with Napoli.

Unai Emery has been forced to play without the services of Granit Xhaka and Laurent Koscielny since the international break came to a close.

The former was a victim of a groin problem while representing Switzerland in a Euro 2020 qualifier match with Denmark.

Club skipper on the other hand is battling a bruised foot. He was close to making the Everton clash but there was a slight setback.

The boss after our 1-0 loss at Goodison Park expressed doubts over the possibility of the two getting fully fit before we play on Thursday.

The situation remains the same less than 48 hours to the commencement of the game with the fitness team disclosing that assessment is still ongoing on the affected pair.

We will keep you posted if there is any further development in the progress of the stars. Unai Emery would still say more at his press conference, so there are chances we would get positive news.

Arsenal will face less pressure without Xhaka since Lucas Torreira will be available after missing out of our last three Premier League ties through suspension. It is not expected to be as bad as it was when both were absent in midfield on Sunday.
