Press conference

Emery on Iwobi, Lichtsteiner and Maitland-Niles

Emery

Sunday’s win against Southampton gave us fresh concern over three first-team players.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles missed the game after struggling with illness last week, while Stephan Lichtsteiner and Alex Iwobi limped off in the second half.

Unai Emery was asked about our trio after the game. This is what he had to say:

on Alex Iwobi…
I hope it’s only one knock and not a more important injury. I hope he can play Wednesday.

on Stephan Lichtsteiner…
Lichtsteiner has back pain but I think he can also be okay for Wednesday.

on Ainsley Maitland-Niles…
I hope also Maitland-Niles can be ready for Wednesday.
