Latest Arsenal injury update – some good news and some bad news

Latest Arsenal injury update is a mixed bag with one significant update.

Arsenal has returned to form in recent games as they are unbeaten in their last three games ahead of the match against Manchester City.

This game is one of the toughest the Gunners will face and their fans would probably have hoped that it came at another time.

Even more worrying is the fact that the Gunners now have a lengthy list of players who are injured.

Bad News

Hector Bellerin is expected to resume training next week that means he will be unavailable for Arsenal’s game against City with a hamstring injury.

Dani Ceballos was one of Arsenal’s best players at the start of the season, but he has been sidelined since the start of November. The Real Madrid loanee is booked for a return to first-team training next week.

Rob Holding has struggled with injuries recently and his current injury is set to keep him out of City’s match again. He has at least two more weeks on the sideline before he returns to training.

Kieran Tierney dislocated one of his shoulders in our game against West Ham, he is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines and will undergo surgery next week.

Granit Xhaka is set to miss the Manchester City game as a precaution. He suffered a strike to the head in the game against West Ham and the club wants to make sure he recovers well before he’s thrust back into action.

Good News

Nicolas Pepe bruised his knee in the win against West Ham. That game was one of his best performance for Arsenal so far, he is going to be fit for the game against Manchester City, hopefully, he will continue his good form.

    Pepe had a good game on monday and has got great potential,the only thing that hurts me are his touches.They have been dreadful from the day i saw him play.If he could improve that aspect of his game in the coming games that would really be great.

    Hoping for a winning 4-2-3-1 attacking formation with ESR in place of Ozil in the middle of the 3.

    Win, lose or draw, Arsenal fans should not give up to despondency. We have had worse injuries in times past and we came out of them. This will be no different.

    Man City are a very good efficient team. But they are not unbeatable, especially if the tactics are right and our boys are ready to fight. If the coaches lose the battle to get it right, the boys should still go ahead and fight.

    Who says we can’t get something out of that match? I believe we can.
