David Luiz is doubtful for Arsenal’s opening game of the new Premier League season against Fulham on Saturday due to injury.
The 33-year-old is battling a neck complaint that could rule him out for an extended period.
It is serious enough to prevent the centre-back from taking part in full training sessions, as Arteta’s squad prepare for the trip to Craven Cottage.
The Athletic understands a late decision is expected to be made on his availability.
Luiz sustained the problem during his side’s Community Shield victory over Liverpool last month and subsequently aggravated it in training.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
