Luiz, Saka, Willian: Latest Arsenal injury updates and return dates ahead of Dundalk clash

Arsenal face Dundalk on Thursday as the Gunners look to make it two wins from two in their Europa League group stage campaign.

After the 1-0 defeat to Leicester City on Sunday evening, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta will be desperate for his side to return to winning ways.

The Gunners welcome League of Ireland side Dundalk to the Emirates on Thursday, but their task is complicated by a list of injury concerns – which now includes David Luiz after the defender was withdrawn with an injury against Leicester – and Bukayo Saka, who was also taken off.

Here is a round-up of all the latest Arsenal injury news ahead of the game on Thursday night.

David Luiz

Mikel Arteta has confirmed that the extent of David Luiz’s injury will be known within 48 hours.

The Brazilian was replaced five minutes into the second half against Leicester after suffering a suspected muscle injury.

Arteta said: “I don’t know. We’ve lost a few players in the last week or so. David had a muscular problem and he couldn’t carry on.

“We’ll have to assess him in the next 48 hours.”


The Brazilian winger was left out of the squad against Leicester after failing to recover from a calf problem picked up against Manchester City last weekend.

The winger was pictured training on Saturday afternoon, and may yet return for Thursday night’s clash.
