Arsenal injury woes continue ahead of their clash against CSKA Moscow in the Europa League quarter final round as first-choice goalkeeper Petr Cech Ruled out of the encounter.
The Czech international goalie started Sunday’s game against Stoke city but couldn’t end it as he was brought out of action due to the knock on his knee. He is also set to miss Thursday’s encounter against the Russian giants.
While commenting on the player’s injury, Wenger told reporters that the knock he picked up was just a minor one which could rule him out for just a week or two at most.
The Frenchman man also talked about Lacazette’s return from his lengthy injury. According to him the striker is still not fully fit to play full match against CSKA Moscow but the striker looks sharp and good in the training session held this morning.
Arsenal must defeat CSKA Moscow in the first leg of the encounter on Thursday if they must stand a chance of qualifying for the semifinal round of the competition.
Meanwhile, Lacazette could be moving out of the Emirates Stadium this summer after failing to impress at the club despite his bright start to his Arsenal career in the early part of the season.
The former Lyon star who joined Arsenal for the then club record fee is being tracked by Atletico Madrid and Juventus according to the Daily Mirror.
