Arsenal have provided injury updates on five of their first-team players ahead of Sunday's meeting with Norwich City, including the latest news on both David Luiz and Shkodran Mustafi, both of whom were injured against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday.
The Gunners were short on defenders even before Thursday's game, failing to name a single defender on their bench. Luiz was forced off in the first half with a rib injury, before Mustafi added to their woes when he picked up a foot injury late in the game.
Right-back Héctor Bellerín also missed the 2-1 loss to Frankfurt with a slight hamstring issue, and he is also set to be assessed shortly before Sunday's game to see whether he is ready to return.
However, one player who will definitely not be able to feature is Real Madrid loanee Dani Ceballos, who has been sidelined with his own hamstring injury ever since the 1-1 draw with Vitória
Finding a solution to these defensive struggles will be one of interim manager Freddie Ljungberg's first tests. The former winger stepped up to fill the void left by Unai Emery, who was relieved of his duties on Friday in the aftermath of the defeat to Frankfurt.
However long I oversee @Arsenal for I will give everything I have to put smiles on faces again. We have a busy few weeks ahead and the team needs your support. Let’s get to work! pic.twitter.com/WdekcA4h5G— Freddie Ljungberg (@freddie) November 29, 2019
