Good injury news for Arsenal as the new season approaches

As Arsenal were preparing for the preseason game against Chelsea in Orlando, I wrote a post about the injuries to the ‘Usual suspects’ of Kieran Tierney, Emile Smith-Rowe and Takehero Tomiyasu all being unavaliable for the match, which was basically the same position we were in at the end of last season, although I did say that the new signing Fabio Vieira had started training with the squad and could make his debut in America.

I was wrong about our new Portugese midfieñder, but hopefully he should be available to return to light training next week, after recovering from an injury to a bone in his foot. It is unlikely that Vieira will be ready to face Crystal Palace, but the latest training pics from Arsenal since returning from the States has seen Tierney, Smith-Rowe and Tomiyasu all being involved in normal training.

The last thing we wanted to do was start the season the way we ended it, with our left back, our right-back and Thomas Partey all being seriously missed in the end-of-season run in. But with Partey having been involved in pre-season and Tierney and Tomi back in group training, we should be loooking very strong indeed by the time the Palace game comes around…

And finally we have Emile Smith-Rowe, who had to be treated with kid gloves last season because of continually niggling injuries. He is back in training but it remains to be seen if he can handle 90 minutes in a full game yet.

Although right now, it looks like Arteta is going to have a few selection headaches by the time we face Palace…

  1. This is what we want ,all players available and to give the manager a selection headache .
    How long they stay injury free ,that remains to be seen .

  2. hopefully ready by mid-August. Realistically i dont see him back any sooner. Hasn’t had a pre-season really either.

  3. Tommy is more important to me out the three because Zenxhenko will play at LB . Though White can play at RB , Tommy is class at RB and we may miss him a bit

  4. Hate that picture of Tomi vs Everton where no action was taken as he was stamped in the face

  5. Both tommy and Tierney are of great importance in our team, my wish is that they maybe available during our opening game with palace
