Sokratis is one of a very few potential missing players for Arsenal on Monday against Leicester City as the Greece international faces a race against the clock in his recovery from an ankle injury.
Reading between the lines of Unai Emery's press conference, it seems more likely than not that Sokratis will miss out. His exact words were "Only Sokratis had one problem, one small injury. Maybe for Monday it's difficult." That sure sounds like he's more "doubtful" than "probable". If you're in a position where you have to make a decision on his status it is best to assume that he won't be playing. Likewise, there is enough wiggle room in that statement that you probably don't want to count on Rob Holding either. Oct 19 - 5:31 PM
