Arsenal have three long term absentees. Hector Bellerin (left knee), Rob Holding (left knee) and Danny Welbeck (right ankle) are set to miss the rest of the season.

And there’s more bad news for the Gunners.

Days after announcing he’s joining Juventus at the end of the season on a free, midfielder Aaron Ramsey is injured.
