Arsenal will be without the services of key duo, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for their match with Everton on Friday.
The north Londoners take on the Toffees in the Premier League, before bracing for a Europa League semi final first leg tie against Villarreal.
But they will have to do without Aubameyang and Lacazette against Carlo Ancelotti’s team, and both will face a race to be fit for the Villarreal clash.
In positive news, Martin Odegaard could be available for Friday’s game.
“Alex has sustained a strain to his left hamstring and will be unavailable for Friday’s match against Everton,” Arsenal’s official website said on Lacazette, per Goal.com.
“He will continue to work with the medical team and will be assessed ahead of next week’s matches.”
On Aubameyang, the Gunners announced: “Auba will be unavailable for Friday’s match against Everton, but is hoping to resume light training by the end of this week.”
“Martin is now back in light training and will be assessed ahead of the Everton match regarding his availability,” Arsenal added on Odegaard.
