Arsenal star set to miss Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final with Manchester City
Shkodran Mustafi will miss Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final with Manchester City.
The German centre-back has become a key part of Arsenal’s defence this season but they will be without him for arguably their most important game of the season to date.
Mustafi missed Monday’s win at Middlesbrough and according to Arsene Wenger, will miss this game as well.
The manager also confirmed that David Ospina and Lucas Perez are out, while Danny Welbeck is a doubt for the Wembley clash.
He said: “We have uncertainties about Welbeck. Mustafi is out. Ospina is out – could be back in 10 days. Perez is out.”
Many believe that Mustafi would fit perfectly into a three at the back system so it is a shame that he was not available for that game.
Arsenal have only one hope of silverware this season and that is the FA Cup. This game and next week’s north London derby are perhaps two of the biggest games of Arsene Wenger’s career.
