Arsenal manager Emery to make late call on Xhaka & Koscielny

Arsenal manager Unai Emery will wait until tomorrow to decide whether Laurent Koscielny and Granit Xhaka can face Napoli in the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday.

Both players have been sidelined with injuries since March.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Emery said: "We are going to decide tomorrow [on Xhaka and Koscielny]. Tomorrow we will decide."

The Gunners will be counting on the experienced duo to help them overcome a formidable Napoli outfit, managed by Champions League winner Carlo Ancelotti.
