Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news update ahead of Monday’s night’s FA Cup clash with Sutton United.
The Gunners face the non-league side on Monday evening, looking to make the quarter-finals and to provide a little boost after Wednesday’s 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich.
Arsenal are sweating over the fitness of skipper Laurent Koscielny who went off in Munich early in the second half.
Asked about his availability, Wenger said, “I don’t know, he has has a scan today.”
The previous round saw players like Jeff Reine-Adelaide and Ainsley Maitland-Niles given a chance to play and they shone in the 5-0 win over Southampton.
They may also get a chance on Monday night.
“It will be a Normal team, I gave a chance to [some young players] because they deserve to play, it’s a good opportunity to show they can do well.
“One or two might have an opportunity to show that they can play every single game now.”
Does that mean others have run out of chances? I guess we’ll see. The likes of Per Mertesacker, Rob Holding, Lucas Perez and others could be in the frame for a start.
