Arsenal face major crisis in central defence after Mustafi limps off in win over Huddersfield

He now joins fellow central defender Rob Holding on the treatment table.

Holding is expected to miss the rest of the season with a cruciate ligament injury.

And Sokratis will also miss the next league match against Southampton after picking up his fifth booking of the season in the 1-0 win over the Terriers.

It has left boss Unai Emery scraping the barrel for central defenders ahead of a hectic festive fixture schedule.
