The gunners will on Saturday face Blackpool in the FA Cup third round and Arsenal will be hoping to qualify to the next round because it’s among their only chance of silverware in this 2018/19 campaign. Unai Emery currently has a lot of injuries at his hands because they have lost about three players to injuries in December and others got injured before that month.
Arsenal young defender Dinos Mavropanos has spent over five months on the sidelines but he has finally returned and the Arsenal fans will be hoping that he is still at his best because they might need him to step up for some of their centre backs who aren’t available. He is an outstanding player.
Shkodran Mustafi was in the starting eleven of Arsenal that faced Fulham at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday but he was subbed off at halftime because he had got an injury. Arsenal boss Unai Emery wants to be cautious with him and is always making sure that they don’t overuse him.
Mesut Ozil has a knee injury which he sustained in training a few days back while Henrikh Mkhitaryan is on the sidelines after having got injured in the North London Derby. Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin have also been out for some mow. Unai Emery has given an injury update about these players ahead of the Blackpool match.
“This morning Dinos Mavropanos started to train after I think five months. That’s good news. Emile Smith Rowe trained with us this morning.” Unai Emery told Arsenal’s official website.
“Continuing with his injury and not OK to train with us is Mustafi, he has to recover from his small injury and continue working alone.”
“Bellerin and Nacho Monreal, Mkhitaryan and also Mesut didn’t train this morning. Tomorrow is the last day, we are going to wait for tomorrow, for how we can be for Saturday.”
