Arsenal latest injury news: check out who is out and who is doubtful for the Premier League clash against Wolves on Saturday?
The games are coming thick and fast for Arsenal as they aim to end the season strongly.
Following three straight wins in a row – including booking a place in the FA Cup semi-final – the Gunners are in action against Wolves away from home.
It’s safe to say Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have the north London outfit’s number having not lost a single meeting since returning to the Premier League.
But the Gunners are building momentum and have been boosted with the news that Lucas Torreira is fit and available for selection after four months out with an ankle injury.
As always, Arsenal issued an update on their club website detailing all of the very latest injury news ahead of the trip to Wolves, confirming the Uruguay international “fit and available for selection.”
So, with the injury problems seemingly beginning to clear up for head coach Mikel Arteta, what state is his squad in ahead of the game at Molineux Stadium?
With the help of PremierInjuries.com, we have taken a closer look at who is out and who is doubtful for the big game.
The defender is a long-term casualty after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee.
He has undergone surgery, meaning that he will be out of action for a period of between six to nine months meaning that he won’t feature again this season despite the delay.
Chambers did participate in a training session recently but is still a long way off from returning to action.
Expected return date: 29/8/2020
The Gunners were rocked by the loss of their first-choice goalkeeper during the 2-1 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion last month, as he was forced off during the first half after a coming together with Neal Maupay.
Leno, who has been one of the Gunners’ best players this season, was clattered into by the Frenchman as he went to collect a long-ball that had come towards him.
The shot-stopper was heard rolling around in pain before being forced off and replaced by Emiliano Martinez.
However, the extent of the injury has now been confirmed and it’s not as bad as first feared with Leno unlikely to warrant a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
The wonderkid became the latest Arsenal star ruled out for the remainder of the season after picking up a knee injury in training late last month.
It has also been stated that a successful arthroscopic procedure was undertaken to repair a lesion in the cartilage of the left knee.
An official statement reads : “Left knee. Sustained injury during training on 21 June. Successful arthroscopic procedure undertaken to repair a lesion in the cartilage of the left knee.
“Will not be available for the current schedule of remaining 2019/20 matches.”
Expected return date: N/A
Another player who experienced a night to forget against Manchester City was centre-back Pablo Mari, as he suffered an ankle problem.
His evening lasted the grand total of just 24 minutes, meaning Arteta now has to rely on Shkodran Mustafi, David Luiz, Sokratis and Rob Holding as his centre-back options.
When the 26-year-old could return is currently unknown, although he has earned a permanent contract at the Emirates Stadium.
Expected return date: N/A
Mesut Ozil , who has not made the last two matchday squads, will be assessed regarding a back problem and has a 50% chance of being available.
Other than that, Arteta has reported no fresh injury concerns – although he did mention in his pre-match press conference that some players are being assessed.
Mustafi , Reiss Nelson , Alexandre Lacazette , Hector Bellerin and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were all substituted in the 4-0 win over Norwich City, and it remains to be seen if some were tactical changes or injury-related.
