Mikel Arteta has been ruled out of the game against his former club after picking up an ankle injury in training.

The club captain, who has only been on the fringes this season, was ruled out by Arsene Wenger at his press conference on Friday morning.

Arteta joins Aaron Ramsey, David Ospina, Danny Welbeck, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere in the treatment room, however we don’t yet have a timeframe for how long the Spanish midfielder is likely to be sidelined.
