Arsenal Head To Old Trafford With Injuries

Arsenal will travel to Manchester United with a string of injury problems and Mikel Arteta had little optimism for most of the players currently on the sidelines, not least Oleksandr Zinchenko. Oleksandr Zinchenko suffered a knee sprain during training for the Fulham match and while there were rumors that he might be fit to face Aston Villa, we know he wasn’t.

Ahead of the Manchester United game, Mikel Arteta has confirmed that Arsenal are not expecting the return of the versatile and elegant former Manchester City player, which is a blow to the team given the other injured players. Speaking of Aaron Ramsdale (hamstring) and Martin Odegaard (bruises), both of whom are dubious, Mikel Arteta said: “Those two [Ramsdale and Odegaard) are in the evaluation phase, we’ll see more tomorrow. Hopefully they can train with the team. . ” Unfortunately, this is not yet the case with Alex [Zinchenko]. He has missed two matches and has not yet been able to train with the team.

“Thomas Partey (thigh) and Mohamed Elneny (hamstring) will both miss.” With Mo it’s probably a little easier and we’re talking months, ”Arteta said. “Hopefully we’ll be talking to Thomas for weeks or even less than that, I hope. We tried to deal with that (Thomas). A lot has happened since he arrived and we are trying to find the best possible way to find out why, but unfortunately body and mind are two different groups. , so sometimes understandable.”
