Ahead of their crunch time clash against Manchester United on Monday night, Unai Emery has confirmed that Arsenal will be without Alexandre Lacazette and Emile Smith Rowe.
Lacazette was ruled out until October as he recovers from an injury to his left ankle while Smith Rowe suffered a concussion during Arsenal's League Cup meeting with Nottingham Forest earlier this week. Rob Holding, Kieran Tierney, and Hector Bellerin all made their first appearances of the season against Forest.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of the United clash, Emery confirmed that the duo will miss the game, "We can be a better competitive team with them. For us being available with every player is the perfect moment.
"Now we have two injuries [against United]. Lacazette and Emile Smith Rowe. Hopefully in a few weeks they can be training with us and available to play. Really we are really happy with Rob Holding, Hector and Kieran."
