The Spaniard has been deployed at centre-back for much of the season, with Laurent Koscielny out injured with tendonitis. With the Frenchman back in the starting XI however, Monreal was pushed out wide to give Kieran Gibbs a rest.

It wasn’t much of a rest though, and just 23 minutes in the Englishman was called upon after his teammate picked up a game ending injury.

The full-back joins a long list of already injured players for Arsenal, including Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott, and Wojciech Szczesny.

Arsenal can’t afford any more defensive injuries, with Arsene Wenger currently working with a threadbare back four.
