Arsenal have received a fitness boost for both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka ahead of their Europa League quarter-final second leg match against Slavia Prague on Thursday.

After missing the 3-0 victory over Sheffield United on Sunday due to illness, Aubameyang is expected to return.

Saka is being assessed by club medics after limping off in the 69th minute at Bramall Lane, but the Gunners are optimistic that he has escaped a serious injury, according to the Daily Mail.

Arsenal are hoping that the 19-year-old has just suffered a dead leg and that he would be able to play in the Czech Republic if that is the case.

Gabriel Martinelli, who scored Arsenal’s second goal against the Blades last weekend, has said he will be fit to play for manager Mikel Arteta.

David Luiz and Kieran Tierney, both defenders, are out due to injuries, while Emile Smith Rowe and Martin Odegaard are doubts.

Arsenal travels to Prague after a 1-1 draw in the first leg at the Emirates last week.
