Sead Kolasinac injury update: Arsenal have recalled their defender Sead Kolasinac from national duty.
Arsenal registered their ninth consecutive win in all competitions yesterday, as they thumped Fulham 5-1. The Gunners’ star forwards, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace in Arsenal’s victory.
With this win, Arsenal are now 4th in the Premier League, above on goal difference against their city rivals Tottenham Hotspur. The Gunners are only 2 points behind league leaders Manchester City, who played a goalless draw against Liverpool.
Unai Emery, justifiably, also addressed their chances of winning the Premier League title in the post-match press conference. However, the head-coach urged the squad to not be driven by recent success, and insisted that the team is taking one-match at a time and not thinking about the Premier League title.
Premier League will not be in action this week as players head out for the international break. However, Arsenal have recalled Sead Kolasinac from playing for Bosnia.
Sead Kolasinac injury update:
Kolasinac made his first appearance of the season in the Europa League match against Qarabag last week, as he recovered from knee injury. The left-back endured a knee injury before the season began.

The left-back looked a little off-the-sorts even as he started the Europa League game on Thursday. And so, Arsenal have reacted to Bosnia’s call-up for the left-back.

Arsenal have asked the player not to play for Bosnia during the ongoing international break, as they don’t want to re-risk the injury for the player. Kolasinac was a first-team regular under Arsene Wenger last season, before he suffered the injury. He made 27 appearances in the league.

Bosnia will be playing against Turkey and Northern Ireland in the international break.
Gotta be impressed with Sead Kolašinac attitude. Came in highly rated after being the Bundesliga left back of the year, started out great but injuries and taking some to adjust have set him back a bit but he was jumping off the bench for goals yesterday.. hopefully he picks it up

Arsenal will return to Premier League action with the match against Leicester City. The Gunners will be having a tight schedule once the players return to the international break, as they play three matches within the space of 7 days, which also include a Europa League fixture against Sporting Lisbon.
