Arsenal manager Unai Emery

Emery gives injury update ahead of Burnley clash

Unai Emery gave Arsenal fans an injury update today when speaking ahead of their Premier League fixture with Burnley this weekend.

The Gunners will be looking to get back to winning ways after two defeats in a row, away to Southampton in the league and at home to Spurs in the League Cup.

Emery confirmed he will be without Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Shkodran Mustafi for the Burnley fixture at the Emirates.

‘We know today, the latest news, and for example, Mkhitaryan is out. Koscielny is okay but he played two matches this week and tomorrow will be a lot for him.’ Emery told his pre-match press conference.

‘We also need to be calm with him, to take time for a lot of matches before he continues playing. Sead Kolasinac, I think for tomorrow is okay. Players are continuing to recover with Sead. I don’t remember now. Mkhitaryan is out. Mustafi is also, for tomorrow, out too.’

Arsenal’s fantastic 22 game unbeaten run finally came to an end last Sunday at St Mary’s when Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton team beat them 3-2. The Gunners were then knocked out of the League Cup on Wednesday night, losing 2-0 at home to Spurs.
