Arsenal to miss four players for Southampton clash as Aubameyang ruled out

1 Mins read

Arsenal captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been ruled out of the Gunners’ clash against Southampton on Tuesday due to family reasons as the gunners will be without three other players.

The Gabonese forward missed the FA Cup defeat to the Saints on Saturday but Mikel Arteta had hoped to have the forward back in his squad for the trip to the south coast tonight.

However, Arsenal confirmed today that Aubameyang is once again ‘unavailable’ because of ‘family reasons’.

“Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – Will be unavailable for Tuesday’s match due to personal family reasons,” a statement on Arsenal’s website read.

The exact details for Aubameyang’s absence have not been explained but Mikel Arteta said he would be given all the time necessary following Saturday’s defeat to Ralph Hasenhuttal’s men

Three other players will also be absent from the matchday squad for Mikel Arteta on the south coast.

Defender Kieran Tierney has a calf injury and is being assessed for discomfort in his lower right leg.

Pablo Mari is also out with a similar injury although it is hoped he will be back in training with the first-team squad next week.

Meanwhile, Dani Ceballos has resumed training after a calf injury but he won’t be fit enough for the squad on Tuesday night.

The club says he will continue to be assessed in the coming days ahead of a return.

Arteta’s side are aiming to get back on track following the 1-0 loss at St Mary’s on Saturday.

A win against the Saints would see them move up three places to eighth in the standings and overtake Ralph Hassenhuttl’s side.

Southampton will be without full-backs Ryan Bertrand and Kyle Walker-Pieters for the game against the Gunners.
