Arsenal's manager Mikel Arteta has expressed doubts in some players ahead of their second leg quarter final game against Slavia Prague in Europa League.
Recall that the Gunners played a score 1-1 draw at Emirates stadium in the first leg last week Thursday.

For Arsenal, they are currently sweating on the fitness of Bukayo Saka. The 19 years picked up an injury in his thigh during Sunday's 3-0 win against Sheffield United.

While speaking during his media conference via club's website:

On the injury to Bukayo Saka...
I don't know. He had to come off. He had discomfort in his thigh and it's the last thing that we need because we're missing some big players at the moment and we don't want to lose another one. Hopefully, it's not that serious.

On the current injury problems...
Yes [I feel unlucky]. I don't know the extent [of Bukayo's injury]. I think for certain David will be out. Kieran will be out and then with Martin, we don't know yet. Bukayo, we'll see how he develops in the next few days.

Already, Mikel Arteta will not have David Luiz and Kieran Tierney due to injuries.

But Gabriel Martinelli who got his first Premier League start due to Aubameyang absence also got a goal against Sheffield. 

The 19 years old Brazilian was later substituted after he sustained an ankle injury. 

Arsenal's boss also provides update on Emile Smith-Rowe and Martin Odegaard who are currently sidelined. 

on if Emile Smith Rowe and Martin Odegaard could be fit...
I don't know, I want to think yes but if I'm honest, I don't know. 

But Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed Sunday's game after he was reportedly ill. But Arteta remain optimistic that his captain and top scorer will recover from the game.


On whether Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be back for Thursday…
I hope so yes. He was unwell yesterday, he could not train, he could not be available today but hopefully in the next day or two he will be feeling better and he will be available to get picked.
