Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news update ahead of Sunday’s Premier League encounter with Manchester United.
The Gunners will be looking to bounce back from last weekend’s abysmal derby defeat at White Hart Lane, and it looks as if we’ll be without Granit Xhaka who picked up an ankle knock in the 2-0 defeat to Sp*rs.
“Granit Xhaka is out from the kick he got in the game,” said Wenger. “It’s a swollen ankle.”
“Mustafi is back in full training, and that’s about it.”
Although when pressed later he said there was a ‘little chance’ that the Swiss international could make it in time.
Asked about Lucas Perez, he confirmed the Spaniard had returned to the fold, but may well miss out because of a knock on the training ground.
“Lucas Perez is back in the training as well but he’ll miss the next two days, he got a little problem in training yesterday,” he said.”
And after the derby defeat, the Arsenal manager is looking for his team to show more when they face Jose Mourinho’s side at the Emirates on Sunday.
“The best way is to respond because we come out of a good spell, we want to bounce back,” he said.
“Sometimes it’s good to have a big game.”
