Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension, injury list vs. Slavia Prague

Sports Mole rounds up all of Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie with Slavia Prague.

Arsenal head into the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final with Slavia Prague looking to bounce back from only claiming a 1-1 draw last week.

The Gunners had been on their way to a potentially-decisive victory with a clean sheet before Tomas Holes netted a 93rd-minute equaliser for the visitors.

However, Mikel Arteta's side responded to that disappointment by cruising to a 3-0 win at Sheffield United in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their trip to the Sinobo Stadium.

In a major blow to Arsenal's European chances, Tierney could miss six weeks with a knee injury, leading to Arteta to acknowledge that the Scotland international may miss the rest of the season.
