GUNNERS Dealt Double Injury Blow As Key Player Seen Leaving Emirates On Crutches


Arsenal has been dealt a major blow as their centre-back Takehiro Tomiyasu was seen leaving the Emirates on Thursday night after Arsenal’s Europa League exit against Sporting Lisbon at the last 16 stage.

Mikel Arteta expressed concern over the injuries sustained by Takehiro Tomiyasu and William Saliba.

Tomiyasu had to be replaced after just eight minutes due to what appeared to be a serious injury, while Saliba followed suit twelve minutes later due to a back problem.….CONTINUE READING

During the post-match press conference, Arteta admitted that he was unsure of the extent of Tomiyasu’s injury, but it looked “pretty serious” based on his reaction and comments.

Meanwhile, Saliba was substituted due to discomfort, and Arteta said he did not know the severity of his injury.

These latest injuries are additional problems for Arteta to deal with, as Eddie Nketiah is also currently sidelined with an ankle problem.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag recently suggested that Arsenal has been lucky with injuries this season, but it seems that luck has run out for Arteta’s side.

‘We’ve been carrying injuries throughout the season,’ Arteta said.

‘We had Emile out for four months, Jesus for four months, Thomas for a month and a half, Alex for two and half months, Eddie for a month and a half.

‘We had quite a lot of injuries already, but we dealt with it. The disappointment is not going to go away it’s there now.

‘But there’s also a clarity. It’s 11 games to go now and we have a final against Crystal Palace. We have to recover and put all the focus there and win.’

Following their Europa League exit, Arsenal’s attention will turn toward their upcoming match against Crystal Palace on Sunday, which will be followed by the international break.

After the break, the Premier League leaders will resume action with a home fixture against Leeds on April 1st.

This will be followed by a challenging run of fixtures that includes trips to Liverpool, West Ham United, and Manchester City throughout the month of April.….CONTINUE READING
