Arteta confirms injuries for Arsenal duo

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed injuries for Mohamed Elneny and Reiss Nelson following the Champions League draw at PSV.

The Gunners ended their group stage campaign with a 1-1 draw at Eindhoven. Eddie Nketiah scored the only goal of the game for the club.

Speaking after the stalemate, Arteta revealed that Elneny was substituted from the game after picking up a hamstring issue in the second half.

He added that Nelson also felt something. Both players are likely to be assessed ahead of the next league game versus Brighton at home.

Arsenal are currently one point behind Liverpool for the top spot in the Premier League. They will be aiming to reclaim the first position.

The Gunners play Brighton first at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday before Liverpool host Manchester United at Anfield in the late kick-off.

After this weekend's action, Arsenal and Liverpool will face off in the Premier League and it could be an early decider in the title race.
