Dani Ceballos suffers suspected hamstring injury vs Vitória

Another bad night for Arsenal

Dani Ceballos suffered a suspected hamstring injury during Arsenal’s Europa League draw with Vitória SC on Wednesday evening.

The Gunners travelled to Portugal with hopes of putting their poor form behind them.

Arsenal went into the game winless in four domestic games, including draws with Crystal Palace and Wolves, as well as a loss to Sheffield United.

That meant that Unai Emery needed a win against Vitoria to ease the pressure on his position.

However, his side once again toiled over the 90 minutes.

Arsenal produced a lacklustre performance, which only earned them a draw.

Shkodran Mustafi scored the opening goal just after the 80th-minute with Arsenal’s first shot on target.

However, Vitória equalised in added time, and could have even won the game with chances late on.

Arsenal’s performance, though, wasn’t the only negative for them.

Who will play against Leicester this weekend?

Dani Ceballos suffered what looked to be a hamstring injury during the game.

The Spaniard pulled up during the second-half, holding his hamstring.

While he did continue for a short while, Mattéo Guendouzi was brought on to replace Ceballos, who went straight down the tunnel.

That could create something of a selection headache for Unai Emery this weekend against Leicester.

Granit Xhaka was axed from the squad against Wolves after his feud with the Arsenal fans, and could also miss the Leicester clash.

There are also still question marks over Mesut Ozil’s standing in the Arsenal squad.

Safe to say, Arsenal fans and Unai Emery will be hoping that Ceballos’ injury is nothing serious.

Arsenal strip Granit Xhaka of club captaincy/appoint Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Granit Xhaka’s current situation got even more interesting on Tuesday evening.

That’s because it was confirmed by Unai Emery that the midfielder had been stripped of the Arsenal captaincy.

Now, striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will take the armband.
