Kieran Gibbs has returned to training after missing Arsenal's 3-0 loss to Everton last weekend.
Gibbs' absence was notable because Romelu Lukaku moved out wide and dominated the slower and less powerful Nacho Monreal as Everton powered to a 3-0 win at Goodison Park last weekend. With a weaker schedule over the season's remaining matches means that either defender should be sufficient to pile up points but Arsenal will have to look at the position as they will be at risk against good teams with the oft-injured Gibbs as the only defender capable of defending players with pace.

Kieran Gibbs came out of Arsenal's Champions League match with Bayern with a hamstring injury. He has been ruled out of the Gunner's weekend match against Sunderland.

Nacho Monreal came in for Gibbs, and should play again against Sunderland. He'll be a good fantasy bet even against an improving Sunderland side as the Gunners have been very, very good at home this season.

Keiran Gibbs missed the FA Cup match with Spurs with an ankle injury and will likely miss the Premier League Week 21 match with Aston Villa as well.

Arsene Wenger made it sound like Gibbs is close to a return to the line-up but not so close that he is a good bet to feature on Monday. With Nacho Monreal well rested and available as deputy there is no reason to rush Gibbs back. Arsenal did struggle in the season-opening loss to Aston Villa but Monreal has played well when given the chance and there is no reason to think that he won't do the same this weekend against a team that has been struggling mightily.

Arsenal's injury list is mounting as the club announce that Keiran Gibbs will miss the FA Cup clash with North London rivals Spurs with an ankle complaint.

Unlike seasons past, Arsenal are fairly well prepared for Gibbs to be injured. Nacho Monreal will get playing time that he needs to keep him happy (it is a World Cup year and he wants to ensure a place on the competitive Spain squad) and sharp. Thomas Vermaelen is also a capable left back in the event that Arsenal need a deputy to their deputy while Gibbs is out injured. There is no word yet on when exactly Gibbs is expected back so check in again as we approach the Week 21 deadline for more information.

Kieran Gibbs missed today's Champions League match against Marseille "due to illness".

Nacho Monreal deputized, but it hardly mattered as Arsenal beat a shadow Marseille side 2-0 thanks to a Jack Wilshere brace. Gibbs will likely be back for the weekend, but it bears watching.

Kieran Gibbs was a full participant in training on Tuesday after injuring his calf late on against Liverpool on Saturday.

With Nacho Monreal available, it remains to be seen if Gibbs will be risked against Dortmund, but surely he'll be back to face Manchester United at the weekend.

Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs suffered a calf strain late in the match against Liverpool and was substituted for Thomas Vermaelen.

Nacho Monreal had already come into the match as a midfield replacement for Tomas Rosicky. Arsenal clearly have depth at left back and it will be interesting to see who Arsene Wenger picks if Gibbs isn't available to play Dortmund.

Arsenal have done well identifying left backs young and bringing them in the first team and Le Havre's Benjamin Mendy may be set to follow Ashley Cole, Gael Clichy, and Keiron Gibbs.

With Gibbs always a doubt due to frequent injuries and Nacho Monreal solid but not spectacular it is about time for Arsenal to bring in the next left back for the production line. That he is young and French will produce no shortage of yawns because Arsenal tend to buy a lot of young French players but this would represent something Arsenal have gotten away from over the last two years, restocking the shelves BEFORE there is a huge need.
