Arsenal will be without Mohamed Elneny for the visit of Aston Villa on Wednesday evening.

As first reported by Football London, the midfielder has picked up a hamstring injury that will keep him out of the contest and is due for a scan over the next 24 hours to determine the severity of the problem.

Elneny, who has nearly 100 caps for Egypt at national level, will leave a huge void in the Gunners midfielder - especially if Thomas Partey is unable to suit up again.

Partey missed Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Fulham last weekend with a thigh injury and is touch and go again for the visit of the claret and blue.

Elsewhere and one of Mikel Arteta’s summer signings, Oleksandr Zinchenko, could also be unavailable.

He, like Partey, missed the win over the Cottagers with a knee problem and will be assessed on Wednesday morning to determine whether or not he is fit enough to take part.

Villa have a couple of knocks of their own and could be without Tyrone Mings and Cameron Archer for the midweek fixture. You can read what Steven Gerrard had to say about their status here.
