Arsenal have been landed a massive blow as Arsene Wenger confirmed Shkodran Mustafi has been ruled out Thursday’s night Europa League clash with BATE Borisov.
Mustafi was forced off with a thigh injury during the 3-1 defeat to Manchester United at the weekend.
However, Wenger insists Mustafi is suffering from a minor thigh problem that will keep him out tomorrow but he could be back to face Southampton on Sunday.
The fact is, Mustafi would have missed the BATE game anyway as he’ll be rested along with the rest of the first team so hopefully he’ll be available again this weekend as he was in fine form before his gaff against United.
The likes of David Ospina, Calum Chambers, Per Mertesacker, Francis Coquelin, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud are pushing for recalls while youngsters Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles could also feature.
