Arsenal are likely to be without Granit Xhaka for their Premier League clash at home to Manchester United on Sunday.

The Switzerland midfielder suffered a kick on his ankle which forced him off in last weekend’s defeat to local rivals Tottenham and is not expected to recover in time to face the Red Devils.

David Ospina is fit following a back complaint, Shkodran Mustafi has returned to full training after a thigh injury but Lucas Perez (thigh) faces another game on the sideline after a slight setback.

Provisional squad: Cech, Ospina, Martinez, Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Mustafi, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal, Gibbs, Maitland-Niles, Coquelin, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Walcott, Iwobi, Sanchez, Giroud.
