Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal is set to miss the Gunners next three fixture as well as w North London derby as he continues to deal with a niggling hamstring injury.

The Spanish left-back has not featured since October 7 after suffering the knock in a 5-1 win over Fulham and Arsenal today confirmed that Monreal would not return to full training for two weeks.

He was not named in the squad, however, and now it has been revealed he has suffered a setback and will not return to full training for another fortnight.

However the injury is a major blow for Unai Emery, whose side visit Bournemouth on Sunday before hosting Tottenham on Sunday, the two games bisected by a trip to Ukraine to take on Vorskla Poltava in the Europa League.

Monreal’s continued absence will be a major blow to Unai Emery, who will now hope that Sead Kolasinac can recover his best form quickly having only just returned from a hamstring issue himself.

In a further injury blow, Konstantinos Mavropanos’ return has also been pushed back.

The impressive young centre-back has not played a single minute this season due to an ongoing groin injury but he was scheduled to return to full training in November.

That date has now been pushed back to December, however, raising fears that the defender may not be fully match fit before the turn of the year.
