Arsenal's appeal against Aubameyang's red card is unsuccessful

Arrivederci Italy

And while some people think he's well to fully recover but in fact, he was on the bench during Arsenal's recent win vs Man United but was surprisingly left out of the squad during their last game vs Palace.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said that players have to step up and take responsibility in the absence of "big players" as the club will be without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the Sheffield United match.

"It's a big shame and a big loss for us, but he mistimed the tackle and we have to accept it", said Arteta.

He added: "Losing probably the most important player is never nice".

"Players have to step up", Arteta replied when asked if the team will be worse without their suspended captain.

Arsenal will take on Sheffield United in the Premier League on January 18.

"Watching the games he's taken charge of, they look more structured and defensively tougher and more hard to break down, but still have the flair players you'd expect".

"But he's been training good, I'm happy with him and I know him really well, so there's no issues there".

"You can help Lacazette by talking to him and giving him confidence, but that ball has to end up in the net", Arteta said.

Nets officially make Kyrie Irving available vs. Hawks
But with the Nets sitting in the middle of the Eastern Conference, Irving's assessment of needing more isn't so farfetched. Instead, Irving said, he was trying to give an honest assessment of where the Nets are almost midway through the season.

"I think that's the best medicine for strikers".

"Someone else has to do it and I want to see that reaction too".

"We have other players that can play in that position".

While Aubameyang's influence will no doubt be a miss for Arsenal at the top-end of the field, Arteta has also been hit by an injury to defender Sead Kolasinac.

The club have been linked with a move for Manchester City's John Stones but, despite being a fan of a player he worked alongside at the Etihad Stadium for some time, Arteta insisted there is no bid for Stones.

"When I look at centre backs he has many attributes that I like from one, but we're not interested".

"He's been in some discomfort, we know this season that he had some little niggles, so we have to assess him and see if we can get him fit for Saturday".

Arsenal 2-1 Sheffield United: The Blades won the reverse fixture 1-0 at Bramall Lane back in October but they are winless in their last nine visits to Arsenal as we've had a strong recent record at home against them [W8 D1]. We have to live with it, this is what we have. We will try to find a way and be as competitive as possible.
