Mikel Arteta gets a huge boost as key Arsenal player returns to training

Mikel Arteta’s anticipation of the Premier League opener this weekend has been met with a substantial fitness boost.

As Arsenal sets its sights on securing a strong start, reminiscent of their performance in the previous season, which enabled them to maintain a prominent position atop the Premier League standings for over 200 days, the team’s focus is further bolstered by squad reinforcement during the transfer window. The club’s hope now centres on avoiding injury concerns.

A notable figure who had been absent from the pre-season preparations in recent weeks is Oleksandr Zinchenko. Holding the position of first-choice left-back at the Emirates, Zinchenko’s presence is pivotal to Arteta’s plans for the upcoming campaign.

Encouragingly, training footage featured on the Arsenal website captures Zinchenko engaging in various drills, offering a reassuring sight for fans. This visual insight suggests that the Ukrainian player has likely recuperated and is diligently working towards regaining full fitness. This progress bodes well for his potential participation in the season’s opening fixture.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Zinchenko is one of our key players and it would be great to have the former Manchester City man available for our first fixture of the season.

However, we do not have to rush him as we have other players who can deliver in his absence.

  1. When Oleksandr Zinchenko first claimed that Arsenal summer signing Jurrien Timber maybe is a better inverted full-back than him.
    Wondering how many gooners did took him seriously?

  2. Good he’s returning to health, but he should play his way back in and not drop a sharp and productive Timber.

    So far Timber has been electric and offers the defense, pace, and physicality Zinchenko lacks.

  3. Need to have Jesus back.
    To win the PL we need Jesus to silence his critics and bang in 20 PL goals , which I think if he remains fit , can deliver .
    I have put my money on Jesus to get 20 PL goals this season but if he misses so many match then I will loose my money surely and Arsenal may miss the title

    1. Jesus’s involvement upon recovery at the detriment of Trossard was our nemesis last season.
      I’m sorry your money cannot be the reason to play him. He must earn it especially where an elite Trossard is fit.

  4. We look very different when Zinny is in the side our new players will need to work with him to get used to Arteta’s tactics
