Arsenal’s updated team news released

Posted on April 22, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal.com has provided fans with some updated team news heading into what many consider to be a crucial game against Everton on Friday night. We all know the European Super League debacle has now fizzled out in the most extraordinary way imaginable, but the focus needs to shift back onto a top six finish – if it’s even possible.

The club knows how important the Europa League is going to be between now and the end of the season, but relying solely on that to get Mikel Arteta’s men back into Europe would be a huge mistake.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Auba continues to recover after contracting malaria on international duty. Auba will be unavailable for Friday’s match against Everton, but is hoping to resume light training by the end of this week.

Alex Lacazette
Left hamstring. Alex has sustained a strain to his left hamstring and will be unavailable for Friday’s match against Everton. He will continue to work with the medical team and will be assessed ahead of next week’s matches.

David Luiz
Right knee. David is making very good progress and is hoping to integrate back into light training with the squad next week.

Martin Odegaard
Right ankle. Martin is now back in light training and will be assessed ahead of the Everton match regarding his availability.

Kieran Tierney
Left knee. Kieran sustained ligament damage to his left knee during the match against Liverpool on April 3. Kieran continues to make positive progress and is hoping to be back in training within two to three weeks.

There were no further health or injury issues from Thursday’s match against Slavia Prague. All other players in the men’s first-team squad are currently available for selection.

As part of Premier League protocol, all members of our first-team squad and support staff continue to be regularly tested for COVID-19.”

Will the Gunners be able to beat Everton?
