Earlier today, Arsenal provided an injury update on Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac, Sokratis, Hector Bellerin and Mohamed Elneny.
The former four names, who play across the backline, will all be assessed ahead of the game at home to Liverpool tomorrow, what with Unai Emery’s men seeking to maintain their excellent 13-match unbeaten run when the Merseyside giants visit the Emirates Stadium.
Midfielder Elneny has an issue with his right thigh and will return to full training in two weeks. Arsenal could do with their four defensive options to be able to play, giving the Gunners more options and the best chance of containing Liverpool’s deadly front three in North London on Saturday.
Here’s our team news ahead of #ARSLIV…

Unsurprisingly, this recent injury update has stimulated quite a reaction from Arsenal supporters on Twitter, with multiple fans still seeing the need for either the players being assessed or new faces to help the defence ahead of tomorrow…
Edging closer to a Lich, Mustafi, Holding, Xhaka defence tomorrow. Come on Hector, Sokratis and Nacho, we need you!

Need to start looking at defenders for January. Still our weakest point of the team

But you said you are assessing Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac b4 Blackpool game!? Are you still assessing them up to now?! Look, we can't afford to miss both against Liverpool. Anyway am glad Xkhaka is available.

we desperately need Bellerin, Sokratis, Monreal or Kolasinac

Without these players though, not many fans are feeling confident ahead of the game…
We must shock the world tommorrow….everybody thinks we will lose

Defence is looking depleted, especially LB. Salah is gonna have a field day

If Xhaka is in the left back, MoSala will deal mercilessly with him. I pray for Arsenal for tomorrow game.

Salah and Mane will rip us apart

If we have no actual left back and right back, safe to say we are toast
