David Luiz and Shkodran Mustafi have joined Arsenal’s injury list after the defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday, but Sead Kolasinac is fit again.
Arsenal saw a few players picking up injury problems in Unai Emery’s last game in charge of the club on Thursday, with David Luiz, Shkodran Mustafi and Granit Xhaka all receiving treatment.
It seems Xhaka has managed to come through without a serious injury, but the other two weren’t so lucky, forced off the pitch before the end of the 90 minutes.
The club have announced that Luiz suffered bruised ribs, whilst Mustafi bruised his left foot. Both players are ‘being assessed ahead of Sunday’s match’, which is usually code for missing out on it. Still, at least it doesn’t appear to be anything more serious.
Hector Bellerin is also ‘being assessed’ with his tight hamstring, and Dani Ceballos is out until mid-December.
There is some good news though, with Sead Kolasinac now fully available for selection. The left-back had missed the last two games with a hamstring problem of his own.
Given Kieran Tierney played 90 minutes of both of those games and didn’t look to be at his best against Frankfurt, Kolasinac is likely to come straight back into the starting lineup against Norwich.
Rob Holding has missed the last couple of games after suffering a knock, but Arsenal haven’t made any mention of it, suggesting it’s nothing serious and he’ll be involved in the squad for Sunday too.
