Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Dundalk

Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Europa League showdown with Dundalk on Thursday evening.

Arsenal continue their Europa League campaign on Thursday when they welcome Irish champions Dundalk to the Emirates Stadium for the second round of fixtures.

Mikel Arteta's side were made to work for their victory against Rapid Vienna last week but eventually got over the line, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang once again the hero of the hour for the Gunners as he came off the bench to bag the winner in a 2-1 triumph.

However, Arteta's men go into Thursday's game following a dismal 1-0 home defeat to Leicester City in the Premier League, with Arsenal's old foe Jamie Vardy heading home with 10 minutes to go on Sunday evening.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Thursday's visit of Dundalk.

David Luiz

Type of injury: Thigh
Possible return date: November 1 (vs. Manchester United)

David Luiz was forced off in the early stages of the second half against Leicester with a thigh problem. Arsenal have since confirmed that the Brazilian will miss out on Thursday and is a doubt for Sunday's clash with Manchester United.

Rob Holding

Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: November 21 (vs. Leeds United)

Rob Holding suffered a hamstring injury during the warm-up before Arsenal's showdown with Manchester City earlier this month. The Gunners have since confirmed that the Englishman is set to be out of action for three weeks, but Holding is expected to return to training soon.

Pablo Mari

Possible return date: November 21 (vs. Leeds United)

Arsenal's defensive woes continue with long-term absentee Pablo Mari, who has not taken to the pitch since June. However, the Spaniard is stepping up his recovery and should return to full training within the next two weeks.

Calum Chambers

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Fitness
Possible return date: October 29 (vs. Dundalk)

Calum Chambers has been on the treatment table for the last 10 months but is finally nearing a return to action after returning to full training. However, the Leicester clash came too soon for the defender and Chambers is unlikely to be involved against Dundalk either.

Gabriel Martinelli

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Teenage protege Gabriel Martinelli has been out of action since the summer with a knee injury, which he has since had successful surgery on. The Brazilian attacker is now back in light training and there is optimism that Martinelli could return for the Gunners before 2021.


Arsenal have no suspension concerns for Thursday's match.
