Gunners Handed Mkhitaryan Blow

Henrikh Mkhitaryan will miss Arsenal’s Boxing Day trip to Brighton and faces a stint on the sidelines. The Gunners have confirmed that Mkhitaryan has suffered a fractured metatarsal and is expected to return to full training in around six weeks.

Defender Nacho Monreal was forced off in the win over Burnley last time out and will sit out the clash at the Amex Stadium.

Playmaker Mkhitaryan missed the win over the Clarets with an ankle injury and will be assessed ahead of Wednesday’s game.

Shkodran Mustafi has a hamstring problem and is unlikely to be risked, while Rob Holding (knee), Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin), Danny Welbeck (ankle) and Hector Bellerin (calf) are all absent.

Manager Unai Emery is expected to keep the faith with Mesut Ozil after his impressive display against Burnley.
