Arsenal star suffers injury – and he isn’t even playing at the World Cup

With Arsenal sitting prettily at the top of the League and with the momentum firing on all cylinders, there couldn’t be a worse time for a six-week break to affect the Gunners winning run.

The biggest risk to this run is that we find some of our top players coming back from Qatar with long-term injuries, which could be a big problem due to the thin-looking squad we have at the moment, but the last thing we expected was that one of our players that ARE NOT at the World Cup giving us a big scare already.

So, Arteta would have watched Norway’s friendly game with Finland with trepidation, ending up with our captain Martin Odegaard going down clutching his ankle after completing the full 90 minutes, and afterwards seen limping on to the team bus after the game.

Obviously we are going to have to impatiently wait to see how his scan works out once the swelling goes down, but as you can see below, Odegaard does look like he is in a lot of pain…

Fingers crossed, Gunners!

  1. This would be a massive blow. I don’t think Vieira is quite ready yet, it’s a lot of responsibility.

  2. Smith-rowe would be ready, I believe it’s just a knock, he’ll be fine, it wouldn’t be a bad idea if we bring in youri tielesman ,

    A trio of Xhaka, Partey and Youri would be nice,

    1. To be at a position of not fearing any team coming to face us,Tielesman is needed to add power to our midfield.plz bring the boy to our team since he has Avery good shooting power

  3. In a way, I’m happy if he gets a knock now. This means he probably doesn’t get involved in any other uneccessary kick abouts until PL resumes and also gets the much needed rest

  4. It wouldnt be silly to give smith rowe some minutes viera was ordinary wen xhaka went of and with the amount of games you cant just keep relying on odegard, personally id like arsenal to look for a target striker, ivan toney

  5. Hmmm is well I believed he will be back before 26th on next month and again this is an a warning to us,for getting back up that is capable of big challenge on his absent .

  6. Oh! this is a big blow to us but we pray that all the injury players should recover before the return of epl.

  7. Thats a blow, but we need to increase thd squad depth by bringing in some new experiences like Asensio
