Henrikh Mkhitaryan among three Arsenal players who could be at risk of Europa League suspension vs Napoli

Arsenal face one of the toughest tests they could have been handed in the Europa League quarter-finals.

The Gunners were drawn against Serie A side Napoli in the last eight of the competition, and they host the team who are second in Serie A at the Emirates on Thursday.

It is set to be an intriguing battle between two of the favourites to win the competition outright.

Ahead of the crucial match the Gunners had a training were Henrikh Mkhitaryan could be seen among them.

However, there we have bad news for Mkhitaryan’s fans as he is among three Arsenal players who are at risk of suspension from the second leg next week if they pick up a booking in north London.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Granit Xhaka and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are the trio who are walking a tightrope from the first whistle at the Emirates. If any of those are booked on Thursday, they will miss the second leg.

Meanwhile, Napoli only have one player at risk of suspension – Nikola Maksimovi.
