The illness means the defender will not feature in the league for the first time this campaign, having played the full 90 minutes in each of the previous six encounters.
It will also be just the second game of the season that Aaron has been absent for, the other being in our 1-0 win against Astana in the Europa League two weeks ago.
“He [Aaron] has been ill over the weekend,” Ole said ahead of the clash with the Gunners, when speaking to MUTV.
“We had to make a decision yesterday and hopefully he’s back for Thursday.“
