Arsenal Duo Left Out Of Squad For Sunday’s Match Due To Security Concerns

Arsenal have released a statement that Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac will not make the trip up to Newcastle due to security threats.

Charles Watts, who is an Arsenal correspondent for Goal, has tweeted the statement in its entirety.

We don’t know what the new security threats are but they may stem from an incident in July in which the two were attacked by knife-wielding assailants. That incident can be seen below.

Of course this is terrible news and we hope both players and their families are kept safe. We also hope that whoever is posing the security risk is apprehended and brought to justice.
