Alex Iwobi is reportedly out injured again, ahead of Arsenal’s match against BATE Borisov and Nigeria’s World Cup qualifiers next week.

The Standard report that Iwobi didn’t train on Wednesday and won’t be travelling with the squad due to a thigh injury he’s picked up.

Previously, Iwobi played his first minutes of the league season against Stoke City, but fell injured and missed the Liverpool match and the international break.

Now the same thing has happened again, as the midfielder not long made his return but is out of action ahead of another international break. According to reports, the injury was sustained before the West Brom match and is a quadriceps muscle strain injury.

Although the Gunners have replacements in the form of Alexis Sanchez and potentially Reiss Nelson, it’s concerning to have Iwobi and Danny Welbeck out at the same time, as it doesn’t leave Arsenal with many experienced alternatives.

It’s currently unknown exactly how many weeks the 21-year-old will be out oaf action, but his absence is a blow given I believe he was expected to play against BATE Borisov. We wish him a speedy recovery.
