Arsenal will be hosting FC Vorskla Poltava in the Europa League later today and it will be a game that Unai Emery’s side will be expecting to win. The Spaniard has won his last three games as Arsenal boss and he’ll be desperate to make it four from four later today. The Gunners will be without a few players and the club shared a link to the Arsenal website for an injury update.
Here's the latest update from our medical team…

Arsenal’s four injury concerns are all defenders. L
aurent Koscielny, Sead Kolasinac, Carl Jenkinson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are the four and with three of those being full-backs, it makes it fairly obvious that it will be between Hector Bellerin and Stephan Lichtsteiner to see who starts at right-back whilst Nacho Monreal should be given the nod at left-back.
The Gunners are in a good position to qualify from their Europa League group. The clubface Vorskla, Qarabag and Sporting in their group and given Unai Emery’s previous successes in the competition the fans will be confident that the club can qualify from the group and have a good go at winning the whole competition. For now, though it’s all about later today and the fans have been given their reactions to the latest team news.

The fans will be looking forward to seeing how Emery lines his side up for this game and will be hoping some of the fringe players can get a game.
