Major Arsenal concern ahead of Bournemouth game



Unai Emery

After securing a convincing 2-0 win against Southampton in the weekend, the North London outfit Arsenal will yet again line up before Bournemouth on Wednesday to continue the push so as to seal their standing in the fourth position.

Following the 0-0 draw between Liverpool and Man United, the Gunners have now moved on to the fourth position and they will be looking forward to retaining the spot ahead of Chelsea and the Red Devils.

However, manager Unai Emery has stated that his side will hope to maintain the push by facing each game as they come but that is being threatened as they are feared to be hit with an injury crisis.

Nigerian international Alex Iwobi was forced to leave the Southampton game because of a knock and was replaced by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with 15 minutes to go. He is a doubt for the game.

Also in the game, Stephan Lichtsteiner was replaced in the game earlier on and was replaced by Laurent Koscielny.

However, manager Unai Emery has expressed hope that they will all be back, knowing that a full squad is needed for the game as they seek a massive three points to stand a chance for a Champions League qualification next season.
