Before their Premier League game against Aston Villa on Wednesday, the Gunners are worried about the health of a few of their players.
We hear that Mohamed Elneny will miss Arsenal’s Premier League game against Aston Villa because he hurt his hamstring. The injury happened during Saturday’s game against Fulham, but the Egyptian kept playing for the entire 90 minutes.
Elneny is going to be scanned in the next 24 hours to find out how bad the injury is and how long he will be out of action. People think that the Gunners will wait to see how bad the Egyptian’s injury is before making any decisions in the last few days of the transfer window.
Oleksandr Zinchenko’s return could help Arsenal in the short term, and he may be able to play against Villa. After Saturday’s win over Fulham, the Ukrainian was given a fitness test, and he only missed the game as a “precautionary measure” because he sprained his left knee.
On the other hand, there is some good news about Thomas Partey. His thigh injury is not thought to be as bad as was feared, even though it is similar to one he had at the end of last season. Arsenal is hoping that the Ghanaian will be ready to play again in a few weeks.
Another player who could play in the deeper midfield role is Albert Sambi Lokonga. Mikel Arteta has also mentioned Ben White as a player who could play in that spot in the past.
