Arsenal will be without Mohamed Elneny for Thursday’s Europa League semi-final clash with Atletico Madrid.

The Egyptian suffered ankle ligament damage in the 4-1 win over West Ham on Sunday.

The match at the Emirates also comes too soon for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but Jack Wilshere trained on Wednesday and could be involved.

Speaking in a press conference, Arsene Wenger revealed that Mesut Ozil is touch and go to feature in Thursday night’s crucial affair.

The playmaker sat out of Sunday afternoon’s 4-1 rout over West Ham though and that has put his involvement against Atletico in doubt.

Arsenal’s biggest challenge will be finding the back of the net. Simeone’s men have certainly built their formidable defensive record from the ground up from an era which began in 2011.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ineligible, Danny Welbeck and Alexandre Lacazette could start for Wenger’s men.

Arsenal will be eager to take a lead to the Wanda Metropolitano next week.

Gooners, can we do it? Let us know in the comments…
