Nacho Monreal deputized for Kieran Gibbs against Everton in Week 2 and provided one of the few exceptional fantasy performances for the Gunners with 10 points in the Yahoo game and 6 in
With relatively few Arsenal players cracking double digits in the Yahoo game, Giroud and Ramsey being the other two, Monreal's performance is worth noting. It is always worth evaluating Arsenal's reserve left back because Kieran Gibbs is injured so frequently. Monreal's performance was strong mostly due to his assist on Olivier Giroud's goal so unless you think Monreal is going to become an assist machine, this probably isn't a performance likely to be replicated.

Nacho Monreal missed last weekend's draw with Manchester City but will return to the squad for Week 33 at Goodison Park.

Arsenal are slowly returning to health with Monreal and Ramsey back this week and Mesut Ozil on track to return after Arsenal's FA Cup match April 12th. With Keiran Gibbs healthy, Monreal will likely be a reserve against Everton this weekend but with Gibbs' health never 100% certain Arsenal will be happy to have the Spanish left back as cover. Monreal's return is even more important given that Laurent Koscielny will likely be out another week and Arsenal's defending depth would have been sorely tested with one more injury/suspension.

Nacho Monreal will miss Arsenal's Week 32 match with Manchester City but should return to training and be available by Match Week 33 against Everton.

Nacho Monreal continues to have struggle with injury in 2014 and it will cause him to miss this week's match with Manchester City. The current assessment is that he will overcome the injury in time to train for the Match Week 33 match at Goodison Park. With Keiran Gibbs' red card having been rescinded, Arsenal will start Gibbs at left back for the City match and then have their choice of the two for the Everton match which is looming as more and more critical as Arsenal continue to drop points.

Both of Arsenal's specialist left backs - Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs - are listed as doubts headed into the club's Week 28 trip to Stoke.

If neither left back can go on Saturday then Thomas Vermaelen and Bacary Sagna are the likely deputies in that order of preference. It appears that Laurent Koscielny will be available to man his center back spot again after coming out early last weekend so Arsene Wenger will hope to start Sagna on the right and one of Monreal, Gibbs or Vermaelen on the left. Given the uncertainty, it seems wise to leave all three out of your fantasy line-up.

Arsenal fullback Nacho Monreal left the match against Aston Villa with a foot injury. He suffered ligament damage, but despite early fears, he did not break any metatarsal bones.

Monreal is "a big doubt" for Arsenal this weekend, and would likely have lost his starting spot to the returning Kieran Gibbs anyway.
