Arteta is considered doubtful to play in Saturday's match against Everton after turning his ankle in Tuesday's Champions League qualifier, the Daily Express reports.

Arteta was substituted early in the second half of Arsenal's match in Turkey on Tuesday. The Gunners' captain limped off after turning his ankle and reportedly was seen wearing a protective boot while leaving the stadium. As such, the 32-year-old is a doubt to face his former club this weekend. Should he be ruled out, Mathieu Flamini could serve as Arsenal's holding midfielder against the Toffees.
