Injury boost for Unai Emery as key duo could feature for Arsenal against Sporting Lisbon


It is safe to say that the mood around the Emirates and Arsenal fans around the world is in a happy place. The reason for that is the ten-match winning streak that the club is on.

Everybody associated with the club will be hoping that it can continue in the Europa League as well when Arsenal play Sporting Lisbon. Fans will be happy that a couple of injured players will be back in contention as per talkSPORT.

The players in question are goalkeeper Petr Cech and center back Sokratis. It is good for the manager to have these options at his disposal as they can be called upon if needed.

Sokratis in particular has done a lot to prove his doubters wrong with a string of impressive performances at the heart of the defense. His immaculate reading of the game coupled with his pace makes him a formidable opponent for many strikers.

So, it will be good to have him back and as for Cech, he might not play a part in the match but it is important to have a fully fit squad.

The only real problem that Arsenal are going to have squad wise is in the left back area where both choices are injured at the moment. Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac are a doubt for the match against Lisbon and there is an indication that they will fall just short.

This is the kind of problem that will show the mettle of Unai Emery as a manager and fans will be hoping that he is able to find a solution for this.

Right now, the Gunners have to be focused on the match and that alone as there is no room for distractions in this game. It is important to keep the winning run going as long as possible. And it will help if the squad is fully fit but the players who are fit must be instructed on what to do and how to do it.
