Updates - latest Arsenal injury news and expected return dates

Arsenal overcame Huddersfield Town at the weekend and had to do so without a number of key players.

Top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed the trip to the John Smith's Stadium through illness as did Mesut Ozil, while Aaron Ramsey, Sokratis and Granit Xhaka were all absent through injury.

First-half goals from Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette proved to be difference as the Gunners beat the Premier League's bottom side to stay within a point of Manchester United in the race for Champions League qualification.

The north London outfit were boosted by the return of Henrikh Mkhitaryan for the game following almost two months on the sidelines with a foot injury, while Shkodran Mustafi overcame a slight niggle to retain his place.

Matters in the Premier League and the top four race can be put on the back burner until the end of the month as next up for Unai Emery's side is the return of the Europa League this week.

Arsenal face BATE Borisov in the round of 32 first-leg on Thursday and the Spaniard will be hopeful of getting some of his injured players back for the trip to Belarus.

Danny Welbeck, Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin are all long-term injuries and won't feature again this season.

Defensively the Gunners are rather short of numbers at the moment, while youngster Eddie Nketiah was the only forward player available to Emery from the bench at the weekend.

With that said, we've taken a look at the latest injury news within the Gunners' treatment room ahead of the game against BATE thanks to the good people at Physioroom.com .
