Aubameyang cleared to play against Everton

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been cleared to play against Everton after submitting a medical certificate to the German court.

Aubameyang was due to give testimony regarding the terrorist attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus last April.

The court date was five days ago, and happened to fall in the middle of the striker’s transfer to Arsenal.

Playing against Everton would have put him at risk of a £900 fine.

Fortunately, he’s submitted a medical certificate in time which will clear him to play, according to today’s edition of the Daily Mail.

Aubameyang had missed the court date due to illness although many speculated this was just a ruse because of his impending transfer to Arsenal.

There were doubts about him appearing against Everton due to the same illness, with Arsene Wenger saying he would have to assess how he felt.

“Aubameyang was sick as well, so we have to assess him today [Friday],” he said, as reported by

Our new record signing trained with his new teammates, and seemed to look well enough.

After the 3-1 defeat to Swansea, seeing him in action this weekend could be a real boost to the fans.

It’d also give him a chance to get off the mark straight away.

Should he be unable to play against Everton, his debut will come against Tottenham at Wembley.

Arsenal vs Everton – Aubameyang starts? + potential line-up

Top of the morning gooners…

  • Matchday
  • Excited
  • Optimistic

Arsenal and Everton go head to head today at the Emirates. Good to know we’ve never lost to them at the Emirates. That said, there’s a first time for everything. Here’s hoping that’s not today.

Theo Walcott will be a problem…

He obviously has a bone to pick. Would love to play his best against his old team. Scored a brace in midweek against Leicester.  We must defend well today.

Team News…

Wilshere could start after recovering from the flu. He’ll have a late test to see if he’s ready. 

Wenger said Auba has had a fever all week, and may not start. We’ll just hope he’s made a quick recovery, especially since he could endure the rigours of a full training session yesterday. My guess is that he’ll start on the bench.

However, we could see Auba, Laca, Mkhi, and Ozil, playing together at some stage today 

My preferred Line-up fits in all 4…
