Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Napoli

Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Thursday's Europa League quarter-final second leg against Napoli.

Arsenal are on the verge of reaching the semi-finals of the Europa League for the second season running as they hold a 2-0 lead over Napoli ahead of Thursday's second leg.

An early strike from Aaron Ramsey and a Kalidou Koulibaly own goal in last week's match at the Emirates Stadium leaves the Gunners in a strong position ahead of the return match.

The Gunners had chances to kill off the tie in the first leg, though, and their failure to do so means that they still have work to do at Stadio San Paolo.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Unai Emery's side ahead of the encounter with the Italian club.
