Rubén Sellés will be without Ainsley Maitland-Niles at Arsenal on Friday night, with the full-back ineligible against his parent club.

The loanee will sit out the trip to Emirates Stadium, with Sellés also confirming a handful of players remain unavailable for the trip to London.

"We're still in the same position," he said. "Ché Adams is still out with a calf injury, Mohammed Salisu is still out with his pelvic bone problem.

"Tino Livramento played 45 minutes for the B team last week as part of his recovery but still needs to test a little bit more and Juan Larios is still out with a long-term injury with his hamstring. The one that has recovered is Mislav Oršić who has been training with us during the week."

Commenting on the forced absence of Maitland-Niles, Sellés added: "We have players to cover. Of course, Ainsley is an important player for us and has been playing regularly since we do the team, but it is what it is and we have players to cover and have to show we are good enough to cover that position."
