Full Arsenal injury update ahead of Burnley clash

Arsenal have released a statement informing the fans of the latest in their physio room ahead of the clash with Burnley.

The Gunners confirm that Thomas Partey will miss the clash with the Clarets through injury, while Nicolas Pepe will also miss out on his third and final match due to his suspension, having gotten a red card against Leeds two weeks ago.

We also have doubts over Gabriel Martinelli and David Luiz. The defender has been monitored closely after his clash of heads with Wolves striker Raul Jimenez, in which he endured a head wound, and isn’t expected to be rushed back into the side. He is in full training however, and cannot be completely ruled out.

The young forward is also unlikely to feature, having picked up only 45 minutes of action on Tuesday night for the Under-23 side against AFC Wimbledon, but is now back in full training as he works on the final stages of his recovery.

Pablo Mari and Calum Chambers both played the full 90 minutes of the win over Dundalk, as to prove their fitness after only recovering from lengthy absences also, and could well be in contention for the first-team.

Should Mari or Chambers be in contention for a return to the Premier League XI? Will the side miss Pepe given his recent form in Europe?

    The side will certainly not miss Pepe.

    If there was a stat for individual ball dispossession his would be about 80% per game. He just doesn’t release the ball.

    I’ve just watched a game full of backwards/sideways passing with only 2 shots on target…. and it wasn’t us!!!
    What an underwhelming Manchester derby that was…

    I’ll be surprised if Mari or Chambers start tomorrow…

      Wasn’t it awful Sue?
      I actually went our for half the game it was so uninspiring!!

      Just think how much money these two clubs have spent since our so called “decline” from 2008 and I wonder if both of their managers would have had the success if they had the restrictions on cash that AW had?

      Not only that, but how many of our players (especially city) that we groomed have they raided our club for?

      Such a shame, but some fans can’t see how that affected the club.
      Point it out and one is condemned for not being a “realist”!!!!

      Interesting Ozil poll result to date don’t you think? Some names seem very quite about the result to date?!?!?!

        It was, Ken, drab!! Can’t imagine Pep being impressed with that performance! As for Ole, he’s still employed 😄
        Ken, a lot of your comments are wasted.. people believe what they want to believe 🙄
        Very interesting!! Landslide? Just goes to show hey, he’s not as unpopular as some make out! And I loved your comment on the other thread about it being ‘rigged’ 😂

        The Manchester derby turned out to be a damp squib but I thought Stones was assured and composed throughout.

      3. Joe. S says:

        Has Guardiola ever been to a club where he hasn’t had unlimited funds?. In one sense he is an unproven manager because he has never had to take a team up from the Championship or have to do what the likes of Burnley have done to survive. I am not a fan but considering what he did at Seville and is now doing at Villarreal one can argue that Emery gives a bigger bang for the bucks.

      finally someone actually watch the other games

      the club always get blame when we played sideways and backwards

      however 2 world class, big name and fan favs clubs played like that too

  3. Twig says:

    The scenes when Burnley is winning Arsenal 0-1 in the 85th minute then Arteta brings on Martinelli who scores 2 quickfire goals in 5 minutes to give Arsenal a hard fought 2-1 victory to finally breath life back into their season :). COYG!

  4. Adega Olatunji says:

    Somebody should just take position of Bellerin

    1. Funso_1 says:

      Belerin should just be on the bench today. And just before the match, he should be given a five minute drill on how to take a throw.
