Shkodran Mustafi is a doubt for Arsenal’s clash with Southampton on Sunday.
The defender limped off against Manchester United at the weekend due to a thigh problem.
The German is definitely out of Arsenal’s Europa League game against BATE Borisov at the Emirates on Thursday.
And now Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has revealed Mustafi may also be unfit for their trip to Southampton on Sunday.
“We just have a small problem with Mustafi from Saturday,” said Wenger. “But everybody else looks alright.
“[He had] a little thigh problem but it is a small one.
“It is a possibility [he will be fit for Southampton on Sunday]. If not Southampton, it will be West Ham [when he returns].”
