Arsenal boost as two Everton stars ruled out for tonights game

Anyone has who watched Everton this season will be well aware that the Brazilian Allan has been amazing at unlocking opposition defences, and James Rodriguez has nothing less than world class since arriving from Real Madrid.

But in yesterday’s pre-game press conference, Carlo Anceloti has announced that both will be missing at Goodison Park this evening for the game against Arsenal. In his injury update Anceltti said: “Allan had a problem on his hamstring and we don’t know [exactly] how many games he will be out for,” said Ancelotti told reporters on Football.London at his pre-match press conference. “But for the games in this period, he is not going to play.

“James is not ready yet. I think it is too soon to put him at risk. He is working and I hope he can be ready for the game against United.”

But what is bad news for Everton is good news for Arsenal, although theGunners themselves are missing more and more players through injury (and suspension) themselves.

But this is yet another must-win game for Arteta, and he is aware of the task ahead. He said: “It is always really tough to go to Goodison, I played there and know them really well. They are teams in two different moments but we are preparing the game to go there and beat them, because we need a result.

Hopefully it will be just a little bit easier without Allan and Rodriguez on the pitch…

  1. Allan doesn’t break down opposition defense. He breaks opposition attack. Do you even watch football 🤣

  2. Somehow we will find a way to lose and concede.Unless Everton are really horrendous, a draw seems unlikely.

  3. Arsenal should be capable of beating their opponents with full squad. Now we need to rely on suspensions and injuries to beat Arsenal. Really bad mentality from Arsenal supporters

  4. Iwobi has done really great since James got injured and if care is not taken might inflict pains on Arsenal tonight. I hate it when we look at other misfortune and forget that our team is not balance.
    The injuries to opponent players is not a boost to a team that has not been taken advantage of other teams weaknesses, we need to defend and attack as a unit and everyone has to be cool headed, play for each others and be confident going forward.
    I wish the team best of luck.

    1. Well his record is something like 1 goal and two assists in 37 games, so if he does xmas has come early for him. A typical Arsenal player, good at achieving zero impact 99% of the time.
