Arsenal boss Unai Emery has confirmed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is fit to start the Europa League quarter-final first leg against Napoli tonight.
The striker, who is the Gunners leading goalscorer with 22 goals in all competitions this season, has had to settle for a place on the bench in the last two games after struggling with illness.
However, he has recovered and is ready to face the Italian side at the Emirates Stadium. “He’s getting better and can start,” said Emery. “He had a small problem and he has taken antibiotics for his illness.

That’s the main reason he didn’t start those two matches.” Elsewhere, Arsenal need to assess the fitness of Laurent Koscielny who has been recovering from a foot injury, and Granit Xhaka, who is getting over a groin problem.
The duo both trained on Wednesday, but have not played for the club since the international break in March and Emery may be reluctant to throw them back in.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
