Arsenal boss Unai Emery has withdrawn a couple of his key players from the team which will be facing Qarabag in the Europa League on Thursday.

The Gunners have been in brilliant form in recent weeks, having registered seven victories in a row in all competitions after the back-to-back defeats which came against Manchester City and Chelsea at the start of the new season.

Arsenal continued their winning run on Saturday as two late goals in the second half of the game secured a 2-0 win over Watford at the Emirates stadium.

The Gunners are now preparing for a clash with Qarabag in the Europa League, but according to a report by British journalist Charles Watts, they will be without key stars Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Aaron Ramsey.

The duo featured in the clash with Watford over the weekend, but they have been removed from the squad for the upcoming clash.

According to Watts, Aubameyang will be missing the game due to an illness while Ramsey will be out for family-related reasons.
