Arsenal fans on Twitter left frustrated by Sokratis injury blow

All of the big Premier League clubs seem to lose players to injuries over the international break. Tottenham have lost Victor Wanyama, Liverpool have lost Mo Salah and now it seems, according to The Metro, that Arsenal have lost Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

The news of the Gunners’ latest injury woes was broken first by Gazetta Greece, although it didn’t take long for a number of other outlets to cotton to the fact that Arsenal would have to face Leicester City without the Greek colossus. Now it looks like Unai Emery will be forced into playing Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi, seeing as the pair are his only available centre-backs for this Monday night.

The extent of the ex-Borussia Dortmund man’s lay off is still unknown and the fans only know that for a definite he will be forced to miss out on Monday’s game with Leicester. If the injury is a serious one, the Gunners will have to take comfort from the fact that Laurent Koscielny is on his way back from the ruptured achilles he suffered back in March, which would give Emery another option at the heart of his defence.

The Gunners will be fuming that Sokratis is now out, although they’ll be hoping that it’s not a serious injury and their man is back as soon as possible.
