Meanwhile, the manager while reacting to the player asking to be excused for the game said that: "Ramsey asked me if he can stay in London because his wife is pregnant and they are waiting on the doctors."

The Premier League contenders will also be without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (illness) and Petr Cech (hamstring) for the match in Azerbaijan.

While Henrikh Mkhitaryan stayed back in London due to tension between the country and his native Armenia.

However, that will not stop Emery from naming a strong squad for the game as he looks to secure qualification from the group stage as quickly as possible.
