Henrikh Mkhitaryan set to start vs. Everton Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a doubt – Arsene Wenger
LONDON — Arsene Wenger has confirmed Henrikh Mkhitaryan is in line to make his first start for Arsenal in their Premier League game against Everton on Saturday but club-record signing Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is a doubt because of illness.
Aubameyang joined the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday but has had a fever this week, Wenger told a news conference.
“Certainly Mkhitaryan will start. Aubameyang I have to assess how he feels,” the Arsenal boss said.
Jack Wilshere will also be assessed after missing Tuesday’s loss at Swansea with an illness.
