Saka, Gabriel, Timber – Arsenal injury news and return dates for Man City clash

On Monday, Arsenal was informed with concern that Gabriel Magalhaes, the center-back, had not been included in the most recent Brazil squad. Football.london is aware that the defender withdrew as a precaution while the team continues to assess a potential Achilles tendon issue.

A further scare occurred when Bukayo Saka skipped England’s St. George’s Park training session in advance of Saturday’s friendly match against Brazil. What’s new regarding the Gunners’ injury situation is below.
