Arsenal's Henrikh Mkhitaryan could return to face Atletico Madrid

Arsenal's Henrikh Mkhitaryan could return to face Atletico Madrid

That's the verdict of Gunners legend Martin Keown, who believes Arsene Wenger will see their poor form on the road as an issue.

Arsenal's main focus now this season is now in the Europa League and winning the title will give them the chance to qualify for the Champions League next term.

They are yet to pick up an away point in 2018 - and are soon to face Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals of the Europa League.

Arsenal supporters' liaison officer Mark Brindle said: "We know our match in Madrid is already shaping up to be an expensive one for our supporters with the early May Bank Holiday increasing travel costs".

"I haven't seen Santi since the League Cup final, he is in Spain having rehabilitation, but the last news I heard is that he's doing very well", Wenger said on Thursday. "I rested some players after the Moscow match, and they will need a game", the boss explained when addressing the press on Thursday morning. Atletico are the favourites for the competition.

Wenger also revealed that he will be making some rotation to his squad for the clash with West Ham at the Emirates.

Bush lost re-election to President Bill Clinton and Barbara Bush gave up the position of first lady to Hillary Clinton. When she returned to Tulsa in 1995, it was as former first lady, this time accompanying the former president himself.

"Of course Mkhitaryan is not back yet [for the upcoming game]. (Goalkeeper) David Ospina is available again", Wenger added.

Wenger then went into details about specific players including Aaron Ramsey who picked up a severe cut on his leg last week.

He has not participated in full training but he's practising in non-contact, so he will be available for Sunday. "He will not want to go to the World Cup and not have settled his situation".

The midfielder has reportedly told friends that he doesn't expect Arsenal to make him a better offer to keep him at The Emirates beyond the end of this season.

"I hope that certainly he will come back before the end of the season and we an make a check-up of where he stands".
