Arsenal without key defender for Brentford trip

Oleksandr Zinchenko news

Zinchenko out of Brentford clash

Arsenal will be missing the services of Oleksandr Zinchenko when they face Brentford on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners have the opportunity to reclaim the top spot in the Premier League if they manage to beat the Bees.

Ahead of the encounter, they have suffered an untimely injury blow with Zinchenko ruled out with a calf problem.

The north London giants have yet to disclose the setback, but the news has been confirmed by the Ukrainian national side.

Zinchenko won't feature in the upcoming Nations League games, and it has been revealed that he will be out for two weeks.

In his absence, Kieran Tierney is widely expected to start at left-back, and he will have a point to prove in the London derby.

The Scot has lost his starting spot after Zinchenko's arrival, and he will be determined to put up a strong performance tomorrow.

Arsenal suffered a disappointing 2-0 loss to Brentford on the road last term, and will be aiming to make amends this time.
