SIX Arsenal players to be ruled out for the clash against FC Zurich

Arsenal are set to host FC Zurich on Europa League's last group-stage matchday on November 4, 2022.

After a massive 5 - 0 victory over Nottingham Forest last weekend, the Gunners have extended their spot on the top of the Premier League with a two-point difference with second-placed Manchester City.

Meanwhile, in a European tie, the Londoners suffered a 2-0 defeat to PSV in Group A last Thursday, which means they will need to beat Zurich to secure their place at the top of the group.

Ahead of the clash, SIX players are set to be unavailable on Mikel Arteta's squad, so here is the list of the latest injury news and possible return dates.

Arsenal injury list and possible return dates vs FC Zurich

Arsenal confirmed that the England international underwent surgery on his groin and is expected to be out for at least two months.


2. Mohamed Elneny

Injury Type: Thigh

Possible return: Unknown

Status: Ruled Out

The Egyptian suffered a serious hamstring injury in August and was expected to be back in action in 2023. However,

the midfielder made a surprising comeback in first-team training on Saturday but Thursday's clash could be way too soon for him.


3. Oleksandr Zinchenko

Injury Type: Calf/Shin/Heel

Possible return: November 3

4. Bukayo Saka

Injury Type: Ankle

Possible return: Unknown

Status: Ruled Out

The England international was subbed off against Nottingham Forest due to an ankle problem last weekend and is currently facing a problem being fit for the World Cup which kicks off in 20 days.


5. Matt Turner

Injury Type: Groin/Hip/Pelvic

Possible return: November 3

Status: 25 %
