Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi could miss the FA Cup clash against Lincoln City on Saturday.
Both forwards were suddenly ruled out of the Champions League match against Bayern on Tuesday due to illness, which Welbz later confirmed on Twitter.
Speaking to the press ahead of the game against the Imps, Arsene Wenger confirmed that they’re both doubts. Although admitted that it’s possible that a bug is sweeping through the Arsenal camp.
Mesut Ozil has been ill since before the Liverpool game, forcing him to miss out on the trip to Anfield and start in the bench against Bayern. Wenger claims that he’s not sure whether the German will feature against Lincoln or not as he’s still not 100%.
“We have two uncertainties – Welbeck & Iwobi (sickness),” the boss said. “Ozil still felt not too well – will see how he is in training.”
Hopefully, no one else manages to suddenly get struck down by this mystery illness before we host Lincoln on Saturday. The team are dropping like flies! Someone get them some Lucozade!
