Nigeria international Alex Iwobi could miss Arsenal FC's encounter with Spanish giants AtletIco de Madrid.

The two teams will lock horns in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa semi-final second-leg match in Madrid on Thursday.

Iwobi, 21, played the entire game as Arsenal lost 2-1 to Manchester United in an English Premier League game over the weekend.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has since disclosed that Iwobi, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and David Ospina are all nursing injuries.

“Mkhitaryan I took off because he had a little knock on his knee again," Wenger said on Goal.

"The same thing, just looking at him in the dressing room.

“Ospina has a rib problem and Alex Iwobi has a hamstring problem," he added.

"We’ll see how everyone recovers because Thursday will come around very quickly.”

Arsenal and Atletico 1-1 in the first-leg clash in London last week Thursday.
