The Gunners have been handed some positive news on the injury front ahead of the clash with Brighton in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Unai Emery has helped the Gunners improve their form this season after replacing Arsene Wenger as the team’s manager back in May.

The former PSG boss has guided Arsenal towards a long unbeaten run which recently ended with an unexpected defeat away to Southampton.

Despite the positive results though, there have been a few concerns for the Gunners who now have several important players out of action due to injuries.

One of the stars who have been troubled by fitness problems so far this season is Nacho Monreal.

The Spanish defender had another injury scare last weekend as he was withdrawn from the game in the first half.

Most fans feared the worst for Monreal, who remains a key part of the Arsenal squad.

However, ahead of the trip to Brighton, the club has revealed that the defender’s injury is not a severe one and he will be assessed before Wednesday’s fixture.

“Tight right hamstring. Being assessed ahead of Brighton & Hove Albion (a) on Wednesday, December 26.” an official update from the club said
