"At the end of training, Pastore felt a muscle problem, and so as a precaution he will not be in the squad," Emery stated at a news conference.

"He has not played for a long time. There was muscle fatigue.

"He will work with the physios on Saturday.

"[Kevin] Trapp, [Thomas] Meunier, [Marco] Verratti and [Angel] Di Maria are not available either. 

"[Grzegorz] Krychowiak is back training with the squad. He will get back into the swing of things by playing with the reserves."
