Arsenal are reportedly handed an injury boost to both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka ahead of their Europa League quarter-final second leg with Slavia Prague.

Arsenal have reportedly been handed a fitness boost for both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka ahead of their Europa League quarter-final second leg tie with Slavia Prague this Thursday.

Aubameyang is expected to return after missing the 3-0 win at Sheffield United on Sunday due to illness.

Meanwhile, Saka is being assessed by club medics after limping off in the 69th minute at Bramall Lane, but according to the Daily Mail, the Gunners are hopeful that he has avoided a serious injury.

Arsenal hope that the 19-year-old has just suffered a dead leg, and if so could be in contention to feature in the Czech Republic.

Gabriel Martinelli, who scored Arsenal's second goal against the Blades last weekend, has also handed manager Mikel Arteta a boost by confirming he will be fit to play.

Defenders David Luiz and Kieran Tierney are both out with injuries, while Emile Smith Rowe and Martin Odegaard are both doubts.

Arsenal head to Prague after drawing 1-1 at the Emirates last week in the first leg.
