Nacho Monreal has failed to shake off a niggling back problem and will not feature against AC Milan.
It was hoped that the defender would be ready for the Europa League tie, but Wenger confirmed Arsenal will be without four key members of his squad on Thursday night. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ineligible for the Round 16 first leg fixture while Alexandre Lacazette is still recovering from minor knee surgery. Monreal has just begun light work on the training pitches and "he is not ready" while Sunday may also come too soon. And Wenger was dealt a further blow when Hector Bellerin was ruled out of the clash due to injury. "He has an inflammation of his left knee, without ligament damage. He had a scan yesterday, which was quite good. He tried [to train] but he needs some further investigation. He was in hospital to know why he is in so much pain. It doesn’t look a long-term problem [but] we had to leave him behind." Mar 8 - 4:41 AM
