Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
The Gunners pulled off a stunning 2-0 win at the San Siro last week and will be hoping to put in a repeat performance against the Italians when they face off again as they look to book a place in the quarter-finals.
Alexandre Lacazette has been out since the defeat against Spurs with a knee injury but in recent weeks we’ve seen Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin sidelined, while Shkodran Mustafi was forced off during the Gunners’ win over Watford on Sunday.
So what is the latest news from the treatment room as Arsenal prepare for the visit of Milan this week? Here’s what Arsene Wenger has had to say about each player’s circumstances.
On Bellerin and Monreal
“Bellerin is in quite a good way. He could be available for Thursday. Monreal as well.”
“Alexandre Lacazette has his first run today, but won’t be back until after the international break (home to Stoke on April 1).”
On Wilshere and Ramsey
“I was cautious with Ramsey and Wilshere given a rest on Thursday night because it was very physical on Thursday.”
“We had one problem with Mustafi who had to come off. [It was a] groin problem. Not sure how bad, we’ll have to check [on Monday].”
“He looks alright.”
“I wanted to preserve some players [against Watford] as Koscielny had a little calf problem.”
