Aubameyang and Lacazette to miss Everton clash

Arsenal’s star duo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette will BOTH miss Everton clash in huge blow for Mikel Arteta as he tries to steer side back to European places

  • Arsenal take on Everton in the Premier League in London on Friday evening  
  • Gunners will be without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette 
  • It is hoped Aubameyang will return to action for the clash against Villarreal
  • He is still recovering from malaria which he contracted on international duty 

Arsenal will be without both senior strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette for Friday’s home game against Everton.

Aubameyang is still recovering from malaria which he contracted on international duty.

Arsenal hope he will be able to return to light training soon, which could see him available for next week’s Europa League semi-final against Villarreal.

In-form Lacazette, who has six goals in his last seven games, remains a big doubt for the Villarreal tie due to a left hamstring injury he suffered in Arsenal’s 1-1 draw against Fulham.

In the absence of Aubameyang and Lacazette the way could be open for England Under 21 striker Eddie Nketiah, who has been short on game-time but who scored the late equaliser against Fulham last Sunday.

Exciting 19-year-old Folarin Balogun is another striker manager Mikel Arteta could use but he has yet to make his Premier League debut. 

Alexandre Lacazette is also out having suffered a hamstring injury in the draw against Fulham
