It was not all good news on Monday night as, despite progressing to the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup, victory came at a price.
Shkodran Mustafi was stretchered off midway through the second half, so what's the latest on the centre back?
This is what Mikel Arteta told the media afterwards:
on the injury to Mustafi...
They're going to assess him between today and tomorrow but when a player has to come off, normally with a central defender - hopefully I am wrong but - normally it's not good news.
on whether it makes a move for Pablo Mari more necessary...
No. We had a very clear intention of what we wanted to do in the market with the resources we have and if we can do it, fine. But his fitness [Mustafi's fitness] won't change anything.
