Great news for Arsenal as Zinchenko expected to be fit for Boxing Day

While Arsenal fans were trying to digest the devastating news that Gabriel Jesus will miss the next two or three months after an operation on his knee, we found out in Arsenal’s Dubai Cup game against Lyon that Oleks Zinchenko was not even in the squad for the Dubai Super Cup match, prompting worries that he was back on the treatment table again, which is becoming to be a very regular thing for the Ukranian.

Obviously we have reasons to worry about which players will be available for Arsenal’s game against West Ham on Boxing Day, but we now know that Gabriel Martnelli is on his way to join Mikel’s squad for training in Dubai, but Bukayo Saka is still in with a chance of going all the way to the World Cup Final and missing the game, and no-one knows what is really going on with Ben White at the moment.

But this afternoon it has been revealed that Zinchenko is still on track to face West Ham….

And to back it up, we have seen the latest pics from the training in Dubai, and Zinchenko has been seen in action…

So we may not have Jesus (and maybe Saka and White) but with Emile Smith-Rowe coming back (like a new signing!), Martinelli and Nketiah leading the forward line, and Tierney and Zinchenko also available, we should have more than enough players to continue our winning ways..

  1. Lets not count our chickens too soon, he still has time to pick up another injury. A bit brittle since he joined Arsenal.

  2. Yes we need Zinchenko up and running, he’s going to be crucial playing high pressing teams.

    The gaffer does seems to get his preseason or interim break well.
    I can see him having the team well drill for that West Ham game.

    West Ham in my opinion has a very good team, they had made some very good signing, was a little surprised how we allowed them to sign Scamacca over us, maybe he carries a little baggage.
    But he’s Italy top striker that would have compliment Jesus nicely.

    But we must kick on from where we left off when normal service resumes.

  3. I pray that arsenal get a good striker, defender and number six in case of any injury problem to maintain their position
