Arsenal handed Aubameyang selection blow ahead of Man United clash

2 min read

Arsenal are set to be without one of their key players for their clash against Manchester United this weekend.

United take on the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League.

The midweek defeat to Sheffield United saw the club lose ground in the Premier League title race, as well as see their 13-game unbeaten run come to an end.

In the build-up to the game, football.london report that Arsenal will still be without striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the match in the capital.

The Arsenal captain revealed on Wednesday that he has been looking after his mother who is currently suffering from illness, and has missed the club’s last two games.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta admitted he was unsure if he would have his captain available to face United, and now it has been claimed that the striker will not be involved in the game at the Emirates.

Aubameyang was the hero for Arsenal in the last meeting between the two clubs earlier in the season, with the 31-year-old scoring from the penalty spot to hand United a 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford in November.

Elsewhere, Thomas Partey, Emile Smith Rowe and Kieran Tierney all trained ahead of the game against United, despite all previously being injury doubts.
