Arsenal football team will travel to Anfield to face Liverpool FC in their next Premier League matchup on Sunday, September 23. The Gunners could find themselves facing one of their most important matches of the season without the services of their star player.
In order to participate in the Gabonese national team's World Cup qualifying matches against Libya and Egypt, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been invited.
Sole against Libya, though, was the former Borussia Dortmund star able to make an appearance, and he was responsible for the game's only goal (a 1-0 victory for his team).
It has been reported that the 32-year-old would not be available for his country's last qualifying encounter against Egypt on Saturday due to a calf injury he sustained in the previous match. This has raised concerns over his availability for the match on Saturday.
Mikel Arteta will be hoping that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's absence from the game against Egypt was merely a precaution, as his captain would be required in a game of this importance, especially given the fact that their unbeaten record in the Premier League is on the line.
