Arsenal’s injury crisis has got even worse ahead of their clash with Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, as Nacho Monreal and Mathieu Debuchy have both been ruled out of the important tie against the Bundesliga giants, as reported by the Daily Express.
Debuchy, who has impressed since moving to Arsenal from Newcastle United this summer, has been ruled out for a significant period of time after suffering ankle ligament damage during the north London club’s clash against Manchester City at the weekend. The Gunners went on to draw that game 2-2, impressing against the Premier League champions.
Nacho Monreal has also not travelled to Germany, putting Arsenal’s defence at a maximum stretch.
The situation could be worsened, with Calum Chambers having missed training on Monday morning. Chambers is expected to fill in at full back.
Should he not be fit, Arsene Wenger will be forced to turn to youngster Hector Bellerin, who recently broke the speed record at the club.
