Arsenal beat Newcastle 2-0 on Monday night at the Emirates to move into third in the Premier League, but it wasn't without the odd injury concern.
Goals from Aaron Ramsey and Alexander Lacazette gave the Gunners the big win and moved them ahead of Manchester United and Tottenham in the table.
Ramsey was substituted in the second half after receiving treatment for an injury, while top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang started on the bench.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery has played down the severity of both problems, and that of defender Laurent Koscielny, who missed the match.
“Aubameyang has had a temperature for two days and was doubtful to play today,' said Emery after the win.
“I don't think it's more and I hope he will be ready for Sunday at Everton.
“We started Friday with not good news with Xhaka because he has a small injury and he could not play today.
“Koscielny was coming with us in the group, but with some pain, and he said to us he is not ready to play the match.”
