Probable Arsenal squad to face AC Milan revealed
7 months ago, 8 Mar 20:19
Hector Bellerin is missing from the Arsenal squad for Thursday's Europa League round of 16 clash at AC Milan. The right-back is absent with a knee injury, with fellow defender Nacho Monreal also left at home as he failed to recover from a back problem in time to be involved. Alexandre Lacazette (knee) is out while club-record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is cup-tied. Danny Welbeck is the only recognised senior striker available to manager Arsene Wenger. "He [Bellerin] is injured - he has an inflammation of his left knee, without ligament damage," said the Frenchman. "He had a scan yesterday, which was quite good. It showed inflammation. "He tried [to train] today but he needs some further investigation. He was in hospital this afternoon to know why he is in so much pain. "But it doesn’t look a long-term problem. He tried, he went out but couldn’t absorb the training session so we had to leave him behind. "Apart from that, of course Lacazette is not ready and we had to leave Monreal behind because he is not ready. He started a little session today only, but he is not ready." Probable Arsenal XI: Ospina, Chambers, Mustafi, Koscielni, Kolasinac, Ramsey, Xhaka, Wilshere, Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Welbeck.
