If the reports from Italian media outlet Gazzetta dello Sport is true, then Napoli’s major attacking threat Gonzalo Higuain is likely not to feature against Arsenal in the champions league clash between Arsenal and Napoli at the Emirates later this evening.
According to the report, Higuain is carrying a right foot injury that has all of a sudden gone bad this morning. The report claim Higuain could only limitedly on Monday night but could not train at all on this morning and as a result he may be left out of the squad that will take on Arsenal later tonight.
If the report is true, then Higuain is likely to be replaced by Goran Pandev against Arsenal later today. If Higuain eventually misses out, it will be a major blow for the Italian as the Argentine has been in a wonderful form for the high flying serie A.
