Latest Arsenal injury news is mainly positive

Arsenal has faced a slew of injuries affecting several key players, however, none of them are thought to be long-term, other than Jurrien Timber, who is expected to have a longer recovery period.

During the match against Tottenham on Sunday, Bukayo Saka and Declan Rice sustained knocks, while Leandro Trossard picked up an injury even before the game started. Gabriel Martinelli and Thomas Partey have been sidelined for a bit longer. However, according to reports from Football London, all of these players are anticipated to make their return in the coming days and weeks.

Saka is likely to be available for the Brentford match on Wednesday, with Rice and Trossard expected back for the Bournemouth game over the weekend. Partey and Martinelli could also be back in time for the game against Man City on October 8th.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Injuries curse all football teams but it seems that Arsenal have been hit hard with so many key players going down with one injury or another.

If this report from Football London is accurate then it seems that we will have all our key men available for the Man City game, which is very positive considering that the champions will be without Rodri and Kevin de Bruyne.

Hopefully, none of them suffer any setbacks or any other players pick up fresh injuries.

  1. Spurs played dirty and physical as expected. That being said. Arteta got it tactically wrong against spurs. I said before the game that Viera would not have the pace and physical attributes for a north london derby. He should have played the improving Havertz as he offers Arsenal an added dimention of strength and aerial dominance. Nketiah plays better as a sub and jesus should have started upfront as the center forward. Smith row should have started on the left as he is more technical than Nketiah and he is a better link up player to suit jesus. Jorginio is similar to Holding where by he dwindls on the ball too long and is slow too release the ball. The game was to fast and competitive to play jorginio. This shows Artetas lack of managerial experience. He will learn from that game who can take a kick and who is slow, soft and invisable in the top competitive physical games.

    1. Spot on Dave,
      ESR should have started.
      Jorginio, I dont rate him.
      Should have tried Zinco in the middle too and nelson on wing.

  2. Ramsdale should get the nod over Raya against Raya’s parent club due to loan agreement terms or due to mixed loyalties. Either way it will be Ramsdale against brentford. I hope Arteta is brave enough to include one or two youth stars in the squad and play most of the fringe players.

      1. @GB

        He is allowed. Arsenal appealed for him to be part of the squad for the game and Brentford accepted. Besides, Arsenal will make the deal permanent next summer.

        1. The Carabao Cup competition has different rules to the PL when it comes to on-loan players featuring against their parent teams. So Raya qualifies to play at Brendford.
          That said, I’d like to see Ramsdale in this game. Also, Saka should be left out even if he is fit to play.

  3. If i see saka in the starting line up tomorrow i might just reach out the tv screen and slap arteta across the face

  4. Against Brentford:

    ———– Rams
    Cedric – Tomi – Kiwi – Zinc
    —— Jorg – Vieira
    Nelson – Havertz – ESR
    ———– Jesus

    I guess we have to play a few OK starters in the match but with 5 subs allowed, I don’t think it’s going to be a problem.

      1. Then they have no business wearing the Arsenal colours!
        Wenger used to go with academy players for this competition because he didn’t rate it. Neither do I.
        No point risking the depleted first team further.

      2. IT MIGHT WELL LOSE TO A FULL STRENGTH BRENTFORD THOUGH, but obviously NOT to a league one side, which is a silly comment to have made.

    1. I like your lineup but I’d probably start Gabriel over Zinchenko . Gabriel was on the bench for the first couple of games so the load on him is lesser than the other starters.

    2. EPL gone, League Cup certainly gone (with this line up) and surely MA will be gone too. 200M spent and one Community Shield to show!

  5. I agree with those calling for Bukayo’s rest and ESR and Reiss inclusion in the starting line up. gotta give those boys what they need as it stands, i’d be really angry if does otherwise.

  6. Phew..Fans: an insatiable bunch. Nothing will ever make sense.

    If Arteta had listened to ya’all on many issues, we’d be worse off. Just this one poor game, that we didn’t even lose, and the band wagon is out -6 games into the season!

  7. That’s good news about Rice and Trossard they were sorely missed on Sun.

    I agree with the fans we should rest as many first-team players as possible and it will be good to get a look at Nelson S. Rowe and others
