Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Thursday's Europa League semi-final second leg with Villarreal.
Sports Mole

Arsenal face a season-defining meeting with Villarreal on Thursday as they welcome former manager Unai Emery to the Emirates Stadium for the Europa League semi-final second leg.

The Gunners trail 2-1 from last week's first leg at Estadio de la Ceramica, though Nicolas Pepe's away goal may yet prove vital in their hopes of progressing to the final.

Mikel Arteta's side beat Newcastle United 2-0 in the Premier League on Sunday, but they are relying on the Europa League to salvage what has otherwise been a disappointing season.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Arsenal's injury and suspension news ahead of the European tie with Villarreal.


Alexandre Lacazette

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: May 6 (vs. Villarreal)

Alexandre Lacazette was given an outside chance of playing in the first leg against Villarreal, but that game ultimately came too soon for the Frenchman, as did Sunday's league trip to Newcastle. Lacazette has since returned to training and has been given a chance of featuring on Thursday.


Kieran Tierney

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: May 6 (vs. Villarreal)

Kieran Tierney has also been pushing for a recall to the side after struggling with a knee injury for a little over a month, though like Lacazette he was not included in the squad against Newcastle. The full-back has little training under his belt, yet he may still be risked by Arteta.


David Luiz

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: May 6 (vs. Villarreal)

David Luiz was back in Arsenal's starting lineup at the weekend after missing the whole of April with a knee problem. However, the Brazilian was taken off early in the second half with an apparent hamstring issue and Arteta admitted it is "not good news".


ARSENAL'S SUSPENSION LIST

Dani Ceballos

Return date: May 9 (vs. West Bromwich Albion)

Dani Ceballos was sent off in the first leg against Villarreal for a couple of yellow card offences and will therefore serve a suspension on Thursday.
