Injury expert warns fatigue will be a problem for Arsenal after the World Cup

Arsenal has made a fine start to this season after they won 9 of their opening 10 league games.

This form has made them one of the early favourites to win the Premier League and fans expect this team to at least make a return to the Champions League.

This season would be disrupted by the World that will be held next month through to the middle of December.

It means league football across the globe would be suspended so that players can represent their national team and try to win the competition.

After the competition, the games will come thick and fast and Ben Dinnery believes fatigue could be a problem.

He tells Football Insider:

“Fatigue becomes a real factor, there’s no doubt about that.

“It remains to be seen the impact of this World Cup in Qatar will actually have on those players, both those involved in the tournament and those at home.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Injuries and fatigue are a part of football and sometimes it is hard to prepare for them.

One way to stop it from affecting your team is to rotate the players, but we need squad depth to achieve that.

At the moment, everything is going our way and we need not worry much about the post-World Cup time yet.

  1. And in other startling “news”, if it rains people get wet!

    These so called articles are getting more and more depressingly predictable. Whoever could possibly guess that players who play too much can get fatigued!!

  2. Arsenal will cross that bridge when we reach it,

    One area of interest , a couple of the teams that are expected to go all the way in the world cup, we dont seem to have much or any involvement with in terms players participation.
    Ofcourse that could change in the coming weeks.

    But what is good for the goose is good for gander.

  3. Arsenal are not the only club with players going to the world cup. What of Mancity whose players are almost all going to the world cup? Won’t they get fatigue too?

  4. Arsenal will be the least to be affected by world cup among top team. Only players guaranteed starting spot are xhaka and Partey whom I do not expect to get past group stage or last 16. All other participating players will get few mins or more which will help them keep sharp but not fatigued. So world world cup can be blessings in disguise for us as our players are looking more and more jaded and fatigued at present.

  5. I hope Saka and Partey stay fit, Vieira is settling well, he seems faster and stronger than Oedegaard with same vision,
    Hopefully Jesus, Gabriel and Martinelli don’t play much in the World Cup 🏟

    1. I don’t think any of these brazilians will be called. Brazil will prefer firmino as he scores more than Jesus

      1. @Zackson88, that would be great 🤓, so hopefully we’ll only have Saka, xhaka and Partey. I’m really worried for Saka.
