[Sport] Aubameyang ruled out of Sheffield United game


Arsenal will reportedly be without captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for their Premier League match against Sheffield United on Sunday.

The 31-year-old came off the bench in the midweek’s 1-1 draw with Slavia Prague, and as a substitute, he set up Nicolas Pepe in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final match.

However, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic, Aubameyang has since been diagnosed with flu and will be unavailable for Sunday’s match at Bramall Lane.

It’s unclear if Aubameyang will be available for the second leg against Slavia next week, but he’s had a poor season overall, scoring nine goals in 25 Premier League appearances for Mikel Arteta’s side.

Emile Smith Rowe, an England Under-21s international, is also unavailable for the trip to Bramall Lane, according to the source, as he has yet to recover from an ankle sprain suffered in midweek.

Long-term absentees Kieran Tierney and David Luiz have joined them in the recovery room, though Martin Odegaard is a big doubt due to his own ankle issues.
