Arsenal to miss seven players for Thursday’s Europa League match against Standard Liege

Arsenal will miss the services of seven first-team players when they face Standard Liege in the Europa League on Thursday night. 

The Gunners have qualified for the next round of the competition but will be keen on finishing atop the group. 

They will, however, be forced to accomplish the task without seven of the first team players, following various injuries in their last two matches. 

Nicolas Pepe, Granit Xhaka and Kieran Tierney sustained various injuries on Monday night while playing against We, joining Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and long-term absentee Dani Ceballos on the list.

Perhaps the biggest worry will be Kieran Tierney's dislocated shoulder, which will see him spend time on the sidelines having returned a few weeks ago following another injury that kept him out for months. 

Shkodran Mustafi is suspended having accumulated three yellow cards in the group stage. 

Freddie Ljungberg's worry will be the Sunday match against Manchester City in the Premier League and he will hope to at least have a number of those for the tie.
