It has been a season rather loaded with controversies for Matteo Guendouzi. He was called out for a bout of poor behaviour at Arsenal’s training camp in Dubai in the winter, with head coach Mikel Arteta reportedly not impressed, and he put on a show of anger at the end of the Gunners’ defeat away to Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.
Five minutes before the break, the Seagulls forward Neal Maupay rather thuggishly bumped into Bernd Leno as the Arsenal goalkeeper caught the ball near the edge of the box. He was probably trying to make the German either drop the ball or step over the line, but the result of the contact was that Leno lost his footing and landed awkwardly, getting injured in the process and having to make way for Emiliano Martinez. .......Read more here.....

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. .......Read more here.....
