Mikel Arteta Confirms Late Injury News Ahead Of Burnley

Arteta Injury News Ahead Of Burnley

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta have confirmed that Sead Kolasinac and Shkodran Mustafi will both be assessed ahead of the Premier League showdown with Burnley on Sunday.

The two of them are still considered injury doubts for the tie, with Kolasinac having a thigh strain and Mustafi sustaining a sprained ankle in the 2-1 win at Bournemouth on Monday night.

But none of the players has been ruled out of the trip to Turf Moor, with the Gunners confirming that Kolasinac has progressed well this week and that both defenders will be assessed ahead of the clash.

Meanwhile, David Luiz and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both available again, after serving suspensions.

However, Arsenal will still be without Calum Chambers, Kieran Tierney and Reiss Nelson for the tie against the Clarets.

Chambers is a long-term absentee after cracking the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee when they lost at home to Chelsea in December.

He has since been operated on and the healing process is expected to take between six and nine months.

Nelson is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury, but the Gunners hope he will return to full training after the match against Burnley.
