Sead Kolasinac and Reiss Nelson will both miss the game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.
It looks like they will both miss the Burnley game on the 2nd of February as well as our FA Cup game next week as the injury crisis continues to mount for Mikel Arteta.
Tierney (shoulder) and Chambers (ACL) are out long term, and Sokratis will have a late fitness test after missing the 1-1 draw with Sheffield United this weekend.
Confidence is in short supply at the moment after recent results, and refereeing ineptitude and we’ll need to be wary of the threat of Chelsea after they conceded a last gasp equaliser up at Newcastle on Saturday, they’ll be hoping to make amends. Also, their late (and undeserved) win over us back in December will also be fresh in their minds, so we need to be at our best.
There is a chance Eddie Nketiah could also play a part as Aubameyang is still suspended after his red card against Crystal Palace. Alexandre Lacazette if finding goals hard to come by but luckily Gabriel Martinelli seems to be stepping up, so fingers crossed we can win this must-win clash, which could see us close the gap to top four to just seven points.
