On Instagram, Eddie Nketiah appears to have confirmed that he is injured and will not be able to play Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League round of 16.
Due to an ankle injury, Nketiah was unable to participate in the Bournemouth match and is unlikely to return before the international break.
The forward from Arsenal wrote on Instagram: “Minor setback, major comeback!”
While Gabriel Jesus continues to recover from knee surgery, Leandro Trossard will be out for two weeks as well due to a groin injury.
In the midst of a Premier League title race, Mikel Arteta’s loss of Eddie is a huge blow.
