Injury update ahead of the West Ham clash 0

Posted on January 10, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

As Arsenal prepare for a London Stadium showdown with West Ham United in the early kick-off game on Saturday, some good news have finally come out of the club’s treatment room.

The back line will seem like a new one, with five of its members returned to full training. Laurent Koscielny, Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Monreal, and would you believe it, Dinos Mavropanos, have now joined the rest of the team and are in contention for the short trip to east London.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan will miss the next six weeks of action with a broken metatarsal in his right foot, Arsenal have confirmed.

The injury of the Armenian is probably the last thing the team needs at the moment. Having suffered a defeat which ended their 22-game unbeaten run at the hands of Southampton and gone out of the Carabao Cup to arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur, the Gunners won the following game – Burnley at the Emirates, and they will be looking to get another run of positive results going as soon as possible.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery spoke to the press after the Europa League win against Qarabag on Thursday, with the accent being on the Southampton trip on Sunday.

On the Eurpoean break helping the team recover between games

The players have a habit of playing a lot of matches per week, month, year, and they are ready to play on Sunday, on Wednesday against Tottenham at the Emirates in the Carabao Cup, on Saturday against Burnley, then Brighton, then Liverpool. The team needs every player, and rest and recovery between matches.

Mesut Ozil could return for Arsenal against Qarabag 0

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has hinted that German playmaker Mesut Ozil could feature for the Gunners in Thursday night’s Europa League game against Qarabag.

Emery is likely to rest his star players for the dead rubber at the Emirates and field a number of fringe players against the team from Azerbaijan. The likes of Nacho Monreal and Laurent Koscielny could also feature, as both look to return to fitness after injury lay-offs.

Ozil could return after a back injury

Ozil has been sidelined through a back injury since 25th November when the Gunners faced November. However, Emery has hinted Ozil could return this evening by telling Sky Sports: “After his injuries, he is OK,”

Arsenal have confirmed that Rob Holding has suffered an ACL injury on his left knee and will miss the rest of the season.

The statement on the club’s official website says:

“Further to the injury sustained during our match at Manchester United on Wednesday night, we can confirm that Rob Holding has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee.

“Rob will undergo surgery to repair this in the coming days. The rehabilitation process is expected to take between six to nine months.

“Everyone at the club will now be working as hard as we can to ensure Rob is back on the pitch as soon as possible.”

Emery speaks ahead of Bournemouth clash 0

As Arsenal prepare to take on Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday, manager Unai Emery spoke to the press.

It’s not always easy, for any team, to pick up where they had left off after an international break. Arsenal were on a very good run – 16 matches in all competitions without a defeat but the manager pointed out there’s another side to that streak; the last three games were draws.

Nacho Monreal ruled out for two weeks 0

Posted on November 23, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has revealed that the Gunners Spanish defender Nacho Monreal will not feature in the next two weeks for the north London team. The Spaniard is reportedly suffering from a hamstring injury and he will not return to training until next month. The news is a blow ahead of a potentially tricky trip to Bournemouth for Emery’s team.

Monreal hard to replace

For me, Nacho Monreal is one of the most unsung players of recent seasons. The Spaniard has produced impressive consistency for the Gunners in recent seasons, not matter whether playing as a full-back or a makeshift centre-back.

Danny Welbeck has second operation on ankle 0

Posted on November 13, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal and England striker Danny Welbeck has had a second operation on the ankle injury he sustained last Thursday in the Gunners 0-0 draw with Sporting in the Europa League.

Unsure if he will play again this season

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is unsure of whether Welbeck will play again this season. The Spaniard is quoted by the BBC, as saying: “Danny will now start his rehabilitation. It’s too early to say how long this will take,”

“Both procedures went well, without complications. Everyone at the club will now be providing Danny with the best possible treatment and support in order to make him fit again as soon as possible.”

Has Welbeck played his last game for Arsenal? 0

Danny Welbeck left the Emirates pitch just half an hour into Arsenal’s Europa League clash with Sporting Lisbon on Thursday with an initially suspected, and later confirmed, broken ankle. There hasn’t, as of yet, been any reliable information on how long the former Manchester United player will be out, but he certainly won’t be coming back any time soon.

Danny Welbeck suffers yet more bad luck with injuries 0

Posted on November 09, 2018 by David Nugent

Some footballers seem to have terrible luck when it comes to picking up injuries. Arsenal and England forward Danny Welbeck is one of those players. On Thursday night, the forward picked up what looked like a horrible ankle injury in a 0-0 home draw with Sporting Lisbon.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery confirmed last night that Welbeck had an ankle break, which is a major blow for the 27-year-old.

Never has any luck

Welbeck just never seems to have any luck when it comes to injury. He will sustain an injury and then work hard to return to action, only for misfortune to strike again and for him to sustain yet another injury problem.
