Welbeck steps up recovery 0

Posted on February 19, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

The recovery of Danny Welbeck seems to be going very well. As Sky Sports claim, the forward has returned to Arsenal’s London Colney training base as the next phase of his rehabilitation begins.

Welback suffered a broken ankle back in November, in Arsenal’s 0-0 Europa League draw against Sporting Lisbon. He tried to take advantage of a cross by Stephan Lichtsteiner. He landed very awkwardly and it was immediately clear things were far from right as he stayed on the ground, notably in significant pain. The medical staff applied an oxygen mask as they stretchered him off the pitch. The ankle breaking was soon confirmed by the club.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos went off injured after only 20 minutes in Arsenal’s FA Cup 1-3 defeat to Manchester United on Friday following an aerial battle with Jesse Lingard. The misfortune was later severely compounded when Romelu Lukaku, apparently unintentionally, hit Laurent Koscielny on the jaw with his foot and forced the captain off as well. With Shkodran Mustafi already on for Sokratis, manager Unai Emery was forced to deploy midfielder Granit Xhaka at the heart of defence again.

Confirmed: Bellerin ruptures ACL 0

Hector Bellerin has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, Arsenal have officially confirmed.

The Spaniard went off the pitch in the 72nd minute of Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Chelsea on Saturday, and was replaced by Mohamed Elneny, which prompted a positional and formational shift across the line-up. Having gone down under absolutely no contact at all, it was immediately clear it would be very bad news for the player, as such injuries often turn out to be the worst case scenario. The omens unfortunately proved to be correct.

Arsenal are waiting on news of the severity of the injury picked up by Hector Bellerin in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Chelsea. The full-back went down holding his knee and the fears are that the injury is a serious one that will sideline him until at least the end of the season.

Bellerin is due to have a scan which will tell the north London club more about the injury and how long he will be sidelined. The 23-year-old had only just returned to the team after injury.

Injury update ahead of the West Ham clash 0

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

Posted on December 13, 2018 by David Nugent

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.

Emery speaks ahead of Bournemouth clash 0

Posted on November 23, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

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.
