According to the latest fitness update provided by the medical staff, Henrikh Mkhitaryan remains a doubt for tomorrow night’s clash with Rennes.
With the Gunners 3-1 down from the first leg, having as many attacking players available as possible is crucial to turning the tie around, but having missed out on Sunday’s 2-0 win over Man Utd in the Premier League, the Armenian will be assessed before a final decision is made.
We might get a better idea later when Unai Emery meets the press, and when training photos become available, but it would be a boost if he did make it.
Arsenal were also boosted yesterday by the availability of Alex Lacazette after his three game suspension was reduced to two, and having served both of those already he could line up again alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Emery does have plenty to choose from even if Mkhitaryan doesn’t make it, with Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Alex Iwobi and Denis Suarez all in the squad.
