Arsenal have confirmed that Dani Ceballos, Sead Kolasinac and Hector Bellerin all have hamstring concerns ahead of Thursday’s match against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Dani Ceballos has been out since the away trip to Vitoria in the last Europa League fixture, but he’s not expected to return to full training until mid-December – per Arsenal’s latest update. The midfielder has an injury to his left hamstring.
Sead Kolasinac also picked up a hamstring injury described as a “tight hamstring” over the international break, and he’s “being assessed” ahead of the Frankfurt match. The good news for him is that he was able to take part in training on Wednesday.
Hector Bellerin also has a tight hamstring, and he is similarly being assessed ahead of Thursday’s match. Realistically, he should be rested from the start either way, it’s just a case of whether he can make the bench or not.
Bukayo Saka has returned to first-team training after missing out over the weekend, as has Rob Holding. As a result, only the Ceballos injury should really have a significant impact on the starting lineup against Frankfurt.
