Aubameyang, Tierney, Ozil – Latest Arsenal injury news and return dates ahead of Man City clash

Many of Arsenal’s players are currently with their international sides, with the October break in full swing.

After playing for their countries, a trip to face Manchester City awaits next weekend with Mikel Arteta’s men looking to repeat their success from the FA Cup semi-final last season.

Arsenal’s last Premier League outing saw them beat Sheffield United 2-1 thanks to goals from Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe.

Arteta will be wanting his side to show the same resilience, determination and desire to make it back-to-back Premier League wins.

With that in mind, here is the latest injury news for the Gunners going into the game with City.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has not reported for international duty with Gabon.

The 31-year-old was initially called up for Sunday’s clash against Benin.

However, it has since been revealed that he sustained an ankle injury during the Gunners’ 2-1 win over Sheffield United last weekend and has had to withdraw from the squad.

“After the withdrawal of Mario Lemina, another executive, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, will not be present to face Benin in a friendly match on October 11 in Lisbon,” a statement reads.

According to coach Patrice Neveu: “Aubameyang suffers from a small sprained ankle, contracted on Sunday, during the Premier League match against Sheffield.

“The Arsenal doctor sent me a certificate indicating his unavailability.

“He is in care for a week.”

With that said, it’s not all bad news for Gunners fans as well as manager Mikel Arteta ahead of next weekend’s clash against Manchester City.

As spotted in Wednesday’s training session at London Colney, Aubameyang was present alongside the likes of Mesut Ozil, Shkodran Mustafi and Alexandre Lacazette.

More importantly, he appeared to be moving about freely.
