Arsenal injury worries continue to mount ahead of Man City game

Arsenal injury worries continue to mount with both Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Jesus now a cause for concern after the 4-0 dismantling of Bournemouth earlier today.

Speaking to the media after the game Mikel Arteta said that Saka had received a “pretty bad knock” and the manager also said that Jesus was limping in the dressing room.

The exact nature of the injuries is unknown at this moment in time with Arteta stating that he himself does not know the full extent, as quoted by the Metro.

The duo are just the latest in a long line of injuries that has afflicted the Arsenal squad and with Man City coming up next Sunday and a midweek Champions League game away at Lens, it is going to be an anxious wait.

Just Arsenal Opinion

The last thing we need is to have more of our players go down with injuries, this is fast becoming a crisis and when you have an opponent like Man City on the horizon you need all your players fit.

Hopefully, the Arsenal medical team will be able to get as many of our injured players back healthy, we are going to need as many of them as we can muster to face the upcoming matches.

  1. I think MA is just playing mind games.

    Saka, Trossard, Rice, all were supposed to be doubts for this one but 2 of them started.

    I think they’ll be fine against City

    1. We pray they all return and be fully fit…so we can manage to beat man City for the first time I’m 6yrs

  2. Can’t understand why you don’t sub your best player off who has been injured when you are 3-0 up. Same rubbish last year and the reason we lost out to city in the final sprint.

    1. Very poor squad management indeed!
      Surely at 3 nil up, both Saka and Jesus should have been rested. Maybe MA wanted 8-0??

  3. I would suggest that the game against Lens might just be more important at the moment. If we win that game it might make finishing top of the group easier!!

    Monetarily, I believe getting out of the group stage as top and progressing to the quarter finals is better than coming 3rd or 4th in the Prem (although I might be wrong).

    I say all of this because I am not sure if we can beat City without Partey playing instead of Havertz.

  4. MA is walking a tightrope and some players end up with longer injuries .
    Like the above poster said up 3-0 and you still have Saka/Rice/Saliba/Odegaard on the pitch.

  5. Granted, Bukayo Saks, is our marks man but needs to be rested so that he can recover fully to avoid the worst

  6. Man management is the weakness in Arteta as manager. Saka injury was avoidable, should have come off before Nketiah.

    Almost as if he doesn’t trust the backup players he recruited.

    We have the depth now, don’t want to hear excuses. It is on Arteta and his coaching skills to ensure ESR, Vieira, and others can produce while his starters are out injured.

    Jesus is injury prone, time to bring in another striker as a starter, preferably one who can score 20 goals a year, just saying.

  7. I just hope it’s not City syndrome. We’ve got to teach city a second lesson after Wolves yesterday 😊

  8. The players will all recover and we will teach man shirty a lesson this time. They will be called Man shirty after the game no more Man city.
