Trossard, Jesus, Nketiah: Arsenal injury news and return dates ahead of Sporting CP clash

Arsenal today step up preparations for the Europa League round of 16 first leg against Sporting CP, to be played in Portugal on Thursday.

The Gunners come into the game after an incredible comeback win against Bournemouth that kept them five points adrift of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table. Despite a memorable winner from Reiss Nelson, the clash has some negative repercussions as two attackers are doubtful for the clash due to injuries.
