Arsenal confirm double injury blow ahead of Everton clash

Aubameyang and Lacazette out of Everton clash

Arsenal have confirmed a double injury blow ahead of their Premier League clash against Everton on Friday night.

The Gunners are currently ninth in the league standings, seven points adrift of a European spot.

Ahead of Friday's game, the club have provided an injury update on five players including their two frontmen.

David Luiz and Kieran Tierney are already sidelined with knee injuries, and they have been ruled out of the encounter.

Meanwhile, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has recovered from malaria, but he is not fit enough to feature against the Toffees.

Alexandre Lacazette will be another absentee after picking up a hamstring strain in the 1-1 draw against Fulham last weekend.

Martin Odegaard has, however, returned from a knee injury, but his availability may depend on a late fitness test.

The Gunners are already seven points behind a potential European spot, and they face a must-win situation on Friday.

They are also alive in the Europa League, where a victory in the final would guarantee them a Champions League berth.
