Then seven days after the that, Arsenal will host Man United at the Emirates. The uplifting news heading into this end of the week’s installation is that Mikel Arteta has affirmed he has no new injury worries regardless of Bukayo Saka requiring treatment prior to being subbed against Oxford United on Monday night.
That implies, by and by, Jesus and Nelson will be the two first-team players ruled out of the visit to Tottenham through injury and it’s nearly 100% sure they won’t be back in time for the conflict against the Red Fiends, so the Spaniard understands what he will work with.
Despite the fact that, as Saka William Saliba are the two senior players still in impending peril of missing the Manchester United game not long from now, might the danger of a one-game suspension at any point hand Arteta to some degree a team decision difficulty going into the North London Derby?

The following Arsenal players with the most yellow cards across the crew are Martin Odegaard, Granit Xhaka, Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes – every one of whom are on three – so they additionally need to tread carefully.
While one more reserving against Tottenham wouldn’t govern any out of the Manchester United game – except if they are shown a second yellow against Tottenham and are in this way shipped off – in the event that any are reserved in every one of the following two games they would be suspended for the game against Everton toward the start of February.
Then, at that point, there’s Thomas Partey on two.
