BREAKING NEWS: Arsenal Releases An Official Statement Regarding Kolasinac And Injuries

Arsenal has officially released a confirmation today, Friday, of the list of injuries and absent players who will miss the crucial must win match against Manchester City.


Sead Kolasinac, 24 years old, was suffering a hip injury since last weekend during Arsenal’s 2-1 win against Swansea City where the Bosnian international contributed in one goal and one assist before he gets injured.

Wenger confirmed that Kolasinac’s injury “hopefully” isn’t serious, and he will be evaluated before Man City’s match by a fitness test. However, it seems the fitness test results are out after Arsenal confirmed the absences against Man City.

The absences list included: Calum Chambers, Santi Cazorla, Danny Welback, Shkodran Mustafi, and David Ospina. Which means Kolasinac may be included in Arsenal’s squad to Manchester because he isn’t included in the absences list.

Arsenal will play one of the toughest matches this season against Man City who is nine points clear away on the top of the table, and 5 points away from Man United, who is the second in the table.
