Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League clash against Everton.
The Gunners have to get back to winning ways having lost 3-1 to Swansea on Tuesday, and there are some doubts over the club record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang whose participation from the start is in doubt after he was hit with illness and hasn’t been able to train fully since his £55m move from Borussia Dortmund.
Asked if the 28 year old, and fellow new arrival Henrik Mkhitaryan would start the game, he said, “Certainly Mkhitaryan will start. Aubameyang I have to see how well physically he is today. It’s sickness, fever.
“He wasn’t able to join in training properly, he started yesterday but still wasn’t completely well. I have to check with the medical department how well and how fit he can be.
“We had Jack who was sick, I will have to assess him today. I hope he will be capable to be in the squad.
“He’ll practice with the team today. Welbeck is not ready.”
Fingers crossed on Aubameyang, his inclusion would be a real boost for a game we really have to win.
