Monreal has been ruled out of Arsenal's Premier League match against Aston Villa on Saturday due to his ongoing back injury.

Monreal was held out of Tuesday's Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund, but manager Arsene Wenger said earlier in the week that he thought Monreal would return Saturday. As of Friday, Wenger said he doesn't know when Monreal will return, but indicated he didn't think it would be long-term.
