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.”

Thomas Partey suffered a huge injury blow in the pre-season friendly against Chelsea on Sunday, leaving the pitch after only 30 minutes of the match which was a part of the ‘Mind Series’ tournament. And as reported by Charles Watts for Goal.com, the midfielder will be out of action for several weeks, which effectively rules him out of the Premier League opener against newly promoted Brentford next week.

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.

The midfielder was forced off the pitch at Villa Park with a muscle issue in the 74th minute, causing another worry for manager Mikel Arteta.

“I don’t know, he had a muscular issue so we had to take him off,” the boss said after the game.

Arsenal have provided updates on the fitness of three players ahead of the Premier League match against Crystal Palace scheduled to take place on Thursday evening at the Emirates.

Gabriel Martinelli turned his right ankle during the warm-up process ahead of the FA Cup win over Newcastle United on Saturday and was consequently replaced in the line-up, having initially been named to start. The 19-year-old forward missed the start of the season through a serious knee injury, and once he recovered, he still understandably needed time to raise his fitness level to the standards required.

The attention for Arsenal Football Club will now be switching from the Premier League to the FA Cup as they prepare to begin their defence of the trophy this weekend against Newcastle United.

Prior to kickoff, courtesy of Arsenal.com, we have some updates for fans regarding the current injury status of Gabriel Magalhaes and Thomas Partey. As we all know, these two are incredibly big factors in Arsenal’s first team squad and the hope is that we’ll see them return sooner rather than later.

The unpopular international break is currently in full swing and a number of Arsenal players have traveled to different corners of the world. Some have remained behind, simply not called up by their respective national teams, or nursing injuries.

One of the latter group is Thomas Partey, who came off at halftime in Arsenal’s shocking defeat at home at the hands of Aston Villa before the break with a hamstring problem.
