Flamini will not play in Arsenal's Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday due to a slight thigh problem.

Mikel Arteta will start at the holding midfielder, and could do the same Saturday against Aston Villa if Flamini is not fully fit.

Flamini scored in the second-half of Arsenal's 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Saturday.

Flamini's game-tring goal came after the Frenchman was credited with an unlucky own-goal during stoppage time of Arsenal's 2-2 draw against Swansea City earlier in the week. The midfielder is not much of a fantasy asset, but his few owners will certainly embrace a rare goal like Saturday's.

Flamini recorded an own goal during stoppage time of Arsenal's draw on Tuesday versus Swansea City.

Flamini was hustling back to clear an opposing attack in the penalty area when the ball ricocheted off his leg and into his goal. While the Frenchman doesn't offer much from a fantasy perspective, his own goal reduced his value even further Tuesday.

Flamini's red card ban has ended and he is expected to play Sunday against Liverpool in the FA Cup, the Daily Mail reports.

With Aaron Ramsey (thigh) and Santi Cazorla (illness) out Sunday, Flamini will likely be thrown right back into the starting XI against a powerful Liverpool attack.

Flamini has been given a four-match ban for picking up a red card in Tuesday's match against Southampton, the Daily Mirror reports. Flamini's extra game, on top of the standard three-match ban, comes from having already serving a ban this year.

Flamini was booked with less than 10 minutes remaining in Tuesday's match for a double-footed challenge on Morgan Schneiderlin. He will now miss Premier League matches against Crystal Palace, Liverpool, and Manchester United, as well as an FA Cup match against Liverpool.

Flamini picked up a red card in the 80th minute of Tuesday's draw at Southampton.

Flamini receives a mandatory three-game suspension as a result. We won't see him again until February 19 (Champions League against Bayern Munich) or February 22 (Premier League versus Sunderland).

Flamini came on for Aaron Ramsey in the 68th minute of Sunday's Premier League draw against Everton.

Flamini has been battling a groin injury lately but it was good to see him back on the pitch in a very important match for the Gunners. He finished with one shot.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flamini (groin) is listed as a reserve for Sunday's Premier League game against Everton.

Given the admirable depth the Gunners have in the midfield, there's no reason to push Flamini in this spot. Arsenal's headed for its most challenging two-week stretch of the season; all the more reason to be cautious with injured players.
