Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has said that he is unsure whether Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be available for the Premier League clash against Manchester United.
The Gabon international has missed the club’s previous two matches in all competitions due to his mother’s illness.
Earlier on Wednesday, Aubameyang said that he is returning back to London and is looking forward to helping the team.
However, Arteta is unsure whether Aubameyang will be involved, given he will have to clear the COVID-19 test.
“He had to support his family and he had to be with them. I don’t know what will happen,” He told via Arsenal.com.
Arsenal are one of the in-form teams in the Premier League at the moment with five wins and one draw from the last six games.
That has seen them jump to ninth on the table and they suddenly find themselves only five points adrift of the Champions League spots.
They have a testing challenge against Manchester United on Saturday and will be aiming to keep the good form going with another three points.
