MASSIVE BOOST to Unai Emery receives Good news ahead of Game

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Arsenal have received some mixed injury news ahead of Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup clash with Brentford.

The Gunners go into the game looking to make it six successive wins in all competitions and they could have two senior players back in contention to make the squad.

Sead Kolasinac, who has been out with a knee problem since pre-season, has now returned to full training – as has Carl Jenkinson, who suffered an ankle injury earlier in the summer.

Both could make Unai Emery’s squad for the third round Carabao Cup clash against Brentford at the Emirates, with Arsenal’s head coach expected to rotate his team ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game with Watford.

Sokratis, who limped off during the first half of Sunday’s win against Everton, will be assessed before Wednesday night’s game, as will Henrikh Mkhitaryan – who was forced to watch the Everton game from the stands after injuring his ankle against FC Vorskla.

The latest injury update released by Arsenal is as follows:

Henrikh Mkhitaryan
“Right ankle from FC Vorskla match last Thursday. Continuing to be assessed ahead of Wednesday’s match with Brentford.”

Sokratis
“Right dead leg during Everton match on Sunday. Currently being assessed ahead of Wednesday’s match with Brentford.”

Sead Kolasinac
“Now back in full training following left knee injury.”

Carl Jenkinson
“Now back in full training following sprain to right ankle.”

Dinos Mavropanos
“Groin injury. Expected to return to full training in four weeks.”

Ainsley Maitland-Niles
“Small fracture to left fibula. Progressing well and now expected to return to full training in early October (initially aiming to return to training in November).”

Laurent Koscielny
“Right Achilles tendon repair. Now working outside. Aiming to return to full training in November.”
