Today is press conference day and the latest Arsenal team news have been revealed with the only real concern being late fitness tests for defender Laurent Koscielny and midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka.
The following players will be unavailable for the trip to Everton on Sunday, Lucas Torreira, who is serving the final game of his three-game ban following his sending off at Tottenham, Hector Bellerin is still out due to his knee injury, the same applies to Rob Holding who is also sidelined with a knee injury and Danny Wellbeck who is still overcoming his serious ankle injury.
It will be a blow if any of Ramsey, Xhaka or Koscielny fail their respective fitness assessments but nothing that we cannot comfortably handle.
Emery said in today’s press conference: “Good afternoon. We are waiting for tomorrow’s training, because some players – Xhaka, Koscielny – didn’t train with us today. They are working alone with the physio. Aaron Ramsey started training normally today and the other players are well.”
So as things stand right now, apart from the long term injured, there is just the uncertainty around Ramsey, Xhaka and Koscielny to be anxious about.
