Arsene Wenger has confirmed that another player has been added to the injury list ahead of this weekend’s trip to Sunderland.

Kieran Gibbs was ommitted from the 18-man squad which welcomed West Bromwich Albion to the Emirates stadium on Thursday night after spending much of the season on the bench despite being fit.

Following the 2-0 win over Tony Pulis men, Arsene Wenger revealed that the left-back was absent because of a “short term” injury he had suffered.

“[He had] a back problem. It looks short term. He had a training session today.” the Gunners manager said

Gibbs is one of the Arsenal players who have been linked with a departure this summer after being kept on the bench by Nacho Monreal over the past 18 months.
