Arsenal suffer big injury blow during Europa League clash with CSKA

Key player

Arsenal have suffered a big injury blow after one of their key players had to be withdrawn during their game with CSKA Moscow due to injury.

That player comes in the form of Henrikh Mkhitaryan who won player of the month for February and has been nominated for March. 

The Armenian has impressed since he joined Arsenal in a swap deal from Manchester United involving Alexis Sanchez.

Playing in a more attacking role than he was at Old Trafford, the forward is starting to flourish both in Europe and the Premier League.

Though, he might not be seen in either of those competitions for some time depending on the diagnosis of his injury from tonight.

The player was withdrawn from the game around the 60-minute mark with what looked to be a knee injury.

Mkhitaryan clashed knees in a challenge with a CSKA player but no information has yet confirmed this.

Arsenal will certainly be hoping for nothing serious with their Europa League campaign coming to a climax.

The side will also be looking to finish fifth in the Premier League with Chelsea their biggest threat.

Ramsey’s stunner

While Mkhitaryan’s injury is no doubt a blow, it will not put a damper on Arsenal’s performance tonight.

The side won convincingly in the game against CSKA, taking a 4-1 lead to Russia next week.

Aaron Ramsey scored two goals while Alexandre Lacazette also got himself a brace.

Though, it was the Welshman’s second strike which really had everyone talking.

Striker Alexandre Lacazette will also be very happy with tonight’s result.

That is because his two goals were exactly what the doctor ordered.

The Frenchman has been struggling for any kind of form this season but now has three in two games.

Now, Arsenal fans have been going wild for their talisman.
