Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said it will be “difficult” for Kieran Tierney and Bukayo Saka to face Wolves on Tuesday night.

 

However, Arteta expects Alexandre Lacazette to feature in the midweek clash.r

Tierney (calf) and Saka (hip) missed the 0-0 draw against Manchester United on Saturday.
But it was hoped they would return by midweek.

 

“They haven’t been able to train with us yet so I think it will be very difficult for them,” said Arteta.

 

“I don’t know, we’ll try until the last minute – see how you feel.”

One player who should be available is Lacazette. The Arsenal forward was hospitalized after Saturday’s game after suffering a heavy landing in a late-stage challenge with Harry Maguire.

“We have to follow the protocols,” Arteta said when asked why Lacazette went to the hospital.

 

“We have to test it and take an X-ray. He was perfectly fine after the game, he was fine yesterday [Sunday] and slept well, so I expect him to be available. ”

 

The Gunners will travel to the Molineux Stadium as they tackle Nuno Espírito’s men, hoping to continue their unbeaten run since January 2021.
