Emery relieved with more options in the defence




Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been handed a boost in his defence as more options are now available for use.

Following the 2-0 win against Everton on Sunday, Arsenal will now face Brentford on Wednesday in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

According to the Arsenal official website, the Spanish manager has been handed a boost with the availability of Sead Kolasinac who is now back in full training after a left knee injury.

Kolasinac was injured just a week before the opening of the 2018/2019 season in the preseason game against Chelsea.

Also, Carl Jenkinson, who has been sidelined, is also back in full training.

Meanwhile, Henrikh Mkhitaryan remains a doubt for the Wednesday clash after suffering a hit in his right ankle from the FC Vorskla game last Thursday.

Sokratis who also suffered a dead right leg during the Everton game on Sunday is a doubt for the Wednesday game but is expected to return fully for the weekend Premier League game.

The likes of Dinos Mavropanos and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are due to return fully in October while Laurent Koscielny who has resumed light training will be seen in action in November.

Injury of key players has been the major challenge suffered by the Arsenal team, especially during the Arsene Wenger.

Emery will be looking at changing the story with the recruitment of a replacement for each player and each role.
