All the Arsenal team news and injury update after Selhurst Park visit

Kieran Tierney will, in all likeliness, be missing the remainder of the season. The 24 year old left back started feeling some discomfort in his left knee before the Crystal Palace game.

At last week’s training session after Arteta’s press conference on Thursday, Tierney damaged his left knee. This is all via Arsenal’s official website.

After serious consultations, more discussions between the player and the medical team, it was decided a surgery is required.

The surgery is expected to take place in London in the coming days, as well. However, at the moment no timeline for his comeback to the pitch are given.

The fullback’s rehabilitation will start right after his surgery is done. As soon as the surgery is performed, his rehabilitation will determine when the Englishman is back in action.

Nevertheless, it is highly likely that Kieran will stay out of action for the remainder of the season.

Thomas Partey was substituted during the match against the Eagles, but the gravity of the injury is unknown. But, official sources says it is due ‘aggravating’ his thigh during the game.

There was optimism surrounding the return of Takehiro Tomiyasu from injury after Arteta’s press conference. Regardless, it looks like he will be out for at least a little over a week now.

The Japanese defender has had troubles with his left calf and won’t be joining the group in training.

The club’s official website says this about his return to the pitch. “It is hoped Takehiro will be back in full training after the match at Southampton on Saturday, April 16.”

Other than these three, however, there are currently no other injuries. The rest of the squad should be available for the weekend game against Brighton.

Kieran Tierney will be out for this game and his injury might keep him out for the rest of the season. Arteta confirmed the left-back had surgery but didn’t confirm any timeline for his return.

“He just had surgery yesterday, so it’s very early to understand how everything is going to develop, he’s going to be out for the period that we estimate and in which condition he will be after that period I think it’s too soon to say something else.”

Another player that will miss the game is Thomas Partey, who is struggling with a thigh injury. “It’s a little bit ambiguous but he has a significant injury. We will have to keep assessing him but he will be out for some weeks,” he said.

Further elaborating, “It’s an area he had a previous injury and he felt it straight away and he’s not fit.”

Arsenal coming back

The reason for why Arsenal will be coming back stronger is very simple. The answer lies in the response Mikel Arteta had to the defeat against Crystal Palace on Monday night.

With a defeat in an ‘easy’ game against Crystal Palace, many will be hoping Arsenal can attain all points against Brighton. However, many people also underestimated the Eagles and Arsenal suffered one of their worst losses of the season.

Atmosphere built around Arsenal will be instrumental in coming back stronger

There was only 1 key positive about our game on Monday. Fans sung songs dedicated to Mikel Arteta and the atmosphere surrounding the club will be especially instrumental in tough phases like these.

Objectively, Arsenal only has one way to bounce back just like every club on the planet, with a win. Nevertheless, this is always easier said than done.

But, Mikel Arteta’s record as a coach at Arsenal indicates towards only one thing. The Spaniard has dealt with setback after setback and has finally managed to turn around Arsenal’s fortunes this season.

“This is an opportunity to see when we talk about unity, if you are on board. When everything goes well everyone wants to be there,” Arteta said in the post match interview after the loss at Selhurst Park.

He also said: “We made it impossible for ourselves. We were really poor, really inconsistent on the ball. At that level, it is unacceptable.”

The gaffer’s response is a step in the right direction when bouncing back after a setback. Knowing what went wrong, analyzing it and then solving it.

Being a student of Pep Guardiola’s, this is part and parcel for the former Everton midfielder. His acknowledgement and honesty are traits that all successful managers possess.

Brighton themselves are desperate for a win. They have been winless in their last five games, losing four of those. Nevertheless, it would be a big mistake to take them lightly.
