Arsenal go into their game against Southampton on Sunday with doubts hanging over the fitness of two players.
The Gunners return to league action this weekend, facing Southampton at the Emirates at the same time Manchester United welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford. With just one point between Arsenal and United, a win for Unai Emery’s men against the league’s 18th-placed team is a must.
Athough Arsenal returned to winning ways against BATE on Thursday night, their form is still something of a concern with little being created up top and the defence looking incredibly shakey, even with Laurent Koscielny present.
The news that he is a doubt, then, is a concern. He was forced off on Thursday night after just 56 minutes and faces a fitness test before the game.
Laurent Koscielny is not the only one who could miss out with Ainsley Maitland-Niles also facing a fitness test ahead of the game.
