Arsenal have been hit with a decent amount ill-luck ahead of the Emirates FA Cup final clash against Chelsea FC on Sunday.
The likes of Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista are all ruled out, and the latest news coming out of the Emirates stadium is that Arsenal may have to play without the services of Shkodran Mustafi.
Arsene Wenger has expressed a level of doubt as regards the German international’s fitness and this may prove to be a fatal one if it happens to hold water.
The manager was quoted as saying:
“It just shows you how unpredictable football can be because we played at home, your mind is on attacking, and on the day we lost two centre backs,” the manager said.
“It’s absolutely unbelievable and unpredictable, and we have been hit hard in a position where we will need to be strong on Saturday. We’ll have to find solutions and hopefully I will find the good solutions.
“I have to decide until Saturday [whether to keep a back three or not] – we’ll test that in training until then.”
