In time to face Manchester United on Sunday, ARSENAL won’t put any pressure on Pierre Emerick Aubameyang to hurry back to duty.

For ‘personal reasons’ which Aubameyang announced was to see his severely ill mother, the striker missed the last two matches.

The captain of the Gunners, 31, says she’s fortunately on the rebound, but Arsenal is comfortable about whether or not he’s going to be available for the big Sunday clash with United.

SunSport understands that the view of boss Mikel Arteta and the club is that health, especially after the events of the past year, is more important than missing one game.

It is unclear whether it is appropriate to follow any quarantine periods to adhere to the guidelines of Covid-19.

Aubameyang said in a social media post: “Thank you so much for all of the messages and calls over the last few days.”

My mother is having some health problems and I had to be there for her.

“She’s already much better now and I will be back home tonight. I’m more than grateful for the doctors and nurses helping her get through this.”

Elsewhere, Arsenal will have to play on neutral territory with their Europa League ties to Benfica or see their entire squad trapped in quarantine for ten days.

For their last-32 clash, the Gunners are set to travel to Lisbon, with the return leg the following week at the Emirates.
