Arsenal provide team news update ahead of Leicester clash

Arsenal have this evening provided a fitness update on the club’s squad, ahead of their upcoming showdown with Leicester City.

King Power clash

Mikel Arteta’s men are set to return to Premier League action tomorrow afternoon, in a meeting with the Foxes.

The Gunners will of course head into proceedings with their tails up, on the back of a potentially season-defining result in midweek.

After falling a goal down to Portuguese giants Benfica, Arsenal fought back, securing a 3-2 win, and booking their spot in the Last-16 of the Europa League in the process.

Leicester, however, represent an altogether different beast.

Brendan Rodgers’ men have proven one of the Premier League’s standout sides to this point in the campaign, currently sitting joint-2nd alongside Manchester United.

Holding latest

As such, Mikel Arteta will no doubt be keen to have as many of the club’s key performers available as possible, for Saturday’s King Power clash.

And, as outlined above, ahead of the highly-anticipated matchup, an update on the players who will indeed be at the disposal of the Arsenal boss has this evening been forthcoming.

The news is largely positive from a Gunners perspective, with the only individual expected to be unavailable coming in the form of sidelined 3rd-choice goalkeeper Alex Runarsson.

Rob Holding, meanwhile, has returned to the fray, after sitting out the last week as per the Premier League’s concussion protocols:

Rob Holding
Rob is available for selection following the successful completion of concussion protocol. Since being substituted last Sunday, Rob has been feeling well at all times and has been closely monitored by our medical team every day at London Colney, where he completed his return to play assessments. Rob returned to full training with the squad on Saturday.

Alex Runarsson
Left knee. Following a strain to his knee in training, Alex is undergoing further assessments and continues to be unavailable.
