Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed Sokratis Papastathopoulos is due to receive initial results from a scan on his knee injury later today.
The 30-year-old was forced off injured during the Gunners’ 2-0 win over Everton on Sunday.
However, it is understood that the defender is not worried about the injury ahead of Arsenal’s hectic string of fixtures.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos awaiting analysis
Arsenal are awaiting results over the extent of Sokratis Papastathopoulos knee injury.
The Greek international’s absence could be a major blow for Unai Emery with so many games just around the corner.
The North London club have Europa League and Carabao Cup ties sandwiched in between Premier League matches.
With Laurent Koscielny sidelined until December, Rob Holding or Konstantinos Mavropanos would be forced to step up.
Fortunately, at this stage, Sokratis is relaxed over the injury.
“We don’t know now but the first analysis is that the doctors will wait until tomorrow
“It’s his knee but I’m hoping it’s not too serious.”
Arsenal 2-0 Everton
Arsenal recorded a fifth straight win on Sunday after comfortably defeating Everton 2-0.
Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang were on hand in quick succession in the second half to help the Gunners seal the three points.
Lacazette wonderfully skipped past a few Everton players before wonderfully curling his shot into the top corner.
Aubameyang two minutes later netted his 12th Premier League goal – the second most in the competition since his debut.
Dynamic duo: Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang

They’ve also assisted each other five times, a dynamic duo 😍
