Arsenal will be without Mesut Ozil for Wednesday’s Premier League trip to Leicester City due to a back problem.
Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed on the eve of the clash he does not expect Ozil to play again this season, while Laurent Koscielny (Achilles) is likely to be sidelined for six months.
Mohamed Elneny (ankle) is also out, as is Santi Cazorla – who has returned to training following an Achilles issue that has kept him out since October 2016.
Provisional squad: Cech, Ospina, Bellerin, Holding, Mustafi, Chambers, Mertesacker, Mavropanos, Monreal, Nelson, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Willock, Wilshere, Ramsey, Iwobi, Mkhitaryan, Welbeck, Lacazette, Nketiah, Aubameyang.
