Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny and Granit Xhaka face late fitness tests ahead of Thursday night’s Europa League quarter-final first-leg clash with Napoli.
Defender Koscielny and midfielder Xhaka have been struggling with respective foot and groin injuries.
Meanwhile, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who started on the bench in Arsenal’s last two fixtures – Sunday’s 1-0 defeat at Everton and the 2-0 victory over Newcastle – has been struggling with illness.
Emery said: “He had a small problem and he has been taking antibiotics because he is sick.
“That is the reason he didn’t start the last two matches.”
