New fears have arisen over the fitness of Pablo Fornals for the game against Arsenal at the London Stadium on Sunday.
The Spanish midfielder took a knock in the game against Leeds which kept him out of the game against Manchester United.
But we have learned today that there’s a worry the 25 year old may have a minor groin problem and as we reported yesterday he will be monitored closely until the end of the week.
There’s still every chance he could make the squad but the medical staff aren’t ready to take any risks with any of the lads at this stage of a crucial season
It will be interesting – should be prove to be unavailable – to see whether David Moyes sticks with the Mark Noble option or moves in a more adventurous direction.
Manu Lanzini looked bright on his appearance against United whilst Said Benrahma presented a far more direct option.
The two of them created a situation which caused the hosts more problems than we had seen in the previous hour and with Jesse Lingard back opes remain high for an important victory.
