Speaking to the press ahead of Arsenal’s encounter with Norwich City on Saturday, manager Mikel Arteta said he wasn’t looking for any excuses for the poor results of the first three Premier League rounds, but he is looking forward to having some players, previously absent, available for selection.

“Well, I’m really looking forward to having everybody available and trying to start the season the way we want,” Arteta said.

“We don’t want to use any excuses. We know how difficult the start was, with injuries, with a lot of COVID issues that we had, and with difficult games we had to play. We have to reset now, and hopefully get everybody back on track, and start winning football games, which is what we have to do.”

Nothing seems to be going Granit Xhaka’s way at the moment. The Switzerland captain was sent off in Arsenal’s 5-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday, and now he’s tested positive for COVID-19 while on international duty for the World Cup qualifiers, the Swiss FA have officially confirmed.

Switzerland beat Greece in a friendly match on Wednesday, but the Arsenal midfielder took no part in it. He was diagnosed with symptoms of the notorious virus on the morning of the match, and a subsequent PCR yielded a positive result. He is currently in isolation and a huge doubt for his country’s qualifier against Italy on Sunday. After that, Switzerland will face Northern Ireland next Wednesday.

Arsenal’s updated team news released 0

Posted on April 22, 2021 by Harry Kettle has provided fans with some updated team news heading into what many consider to be a crucial game against Everton on Friday night. We all know the European Super League debacle has now fizzled out in the most extraordinary way imaginable, but the focus needs to shift back onto a top six finish – if it’s even possible.

The club knows how important the Europa League is going to be between now and the end of the season, but relying solely on that to get Mikel Arteta’s men back into Europe would be a huge mistake.

Liverpool are still the reigning Premier League champions, and by no means are they an easy opponent at any given moment despite having their first three centre-backs ruled out for the season, together with their captain. There is much quality in that team even so, and getting outplayed by them is no tragedy. Nonetheless, the overwhelming feeling after the 0-3 defeat at the Emirates on Saturday is disappointment.

Arsenal manager Mikel Artera was probably extremely worried at halftime of Norway’s expected victory over Gibraltar at the start of the World Cup qualifications on Wednesday evening when Martin Odegaard was subbed off due to an apparent ankle problem. It really didn’t look good at the time; he was banging his fist on the turf when the injury happened.

Arsenal have a very important Premier League showdown with Liverpool coming up after the international break, and having the brilliant young attacking midfielder available for the champions’ visit at the Emirates is of vital significance. It didn’t look good.

Arsenal have had a number of players absent from the last couple of fixtures, and here’s the official verdict when it comes to some of them being involved when the Gunners face Leeds United on Sunday.

Goalkeeper Bernd Leno was sent off for a, for a lack of a better word, foolish moment when he handled the ball outside the penalty area in the 2-1 defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers on February 2nd. He has now served his one-match suspension – the 1-0 defeat away to Aston Villa on Saturday last, which means he is available for Sunday.
