Arsenal’s manager, Mikel Arteta, is faced with a difficult situation as he considers the possibility of losing six important first-team players for their forthcoming Premier League match at Anfield against Liverpool. With 39 points, the Gunners are just one point ahead of Liverpool in the league and are preparing for a crucial match to keep their lead.
Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey, who hasn’t practiced with the team and is still finishing his rehabilitation, is one of Arsenal’s injury concerns. Jorginho is still doubtful, and Mohamed Elneny’s availability for the Liverpool match will be evaluated, according to Arteta’s pre-game press conference.
Additionally, due to his recovery from groin surgery, Fabio Vieira is not expected to be ready until after the New Year, and Takehiro Tomiyasu, the defender, is unlikely to play again until February due to a calf issue.
Summertime acquisition Due to an ACL injury sustained during his Premier League debut in August, Jurrien Timber will be sidelined for an extended period of time. Timber might make a comeback in time for the season’s finale, but everything depends on how well his recuperation goes.
With these important players possibly out, Arteta’s squad will have a big task against Liverpool, highlighting the value of depth and flexibility in a tough Premier League season.
