Team News for Arsenal against Crystal Palace

Right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu might finally return to action for Arsenal after long time out due to an injury. The Japanese defender was out because of picking up a calf injury earlier in the year.

The defender should be all set to return to training ahead of the away game against the Eagles. Head coach Mikel Arteta sounded optimistic when he was asked of the defender’s chances of return.

“I think he will be close. He has been training more and more. He will be joining some sessions this week and let’s see how it is.” If the 23 year old returns, it will be a massive boost for the Spaniard.

In a setback, starting goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale is going to stay on sidelines for this fixture. The English keeper picked up a hip injury in the 2-0 loss against Liverpool in March.

“Aaron is a doubt still. He is still not feeling great. He hasn’t trained yet, so we don’t know what he will be able to do on Monday.

Ramsdale will sit out the Monday fixture against the Eagles

“He wanted to play against Villa, but it was a significant injury and he had to take his time. The physios are doing everything they can to make him available, but we will see in the next few days when he starts to do more real training.”

On Bukayo Saka, Arteta sounded optimistic that the young winger will soon be back. Saka had tested positive for Covid-19 just before the international break commenced.

“Bukayo is feeling good. He is hopefully training today (in the press conference on Thursday), if he is still feeling as he was yesterday,” confirmed Arteta.

Possible Lineup for Arsenal

Arsenal: Leno; Cedric Soares, Ben White, Gabriel, Tierney; Martin Odegaard, Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka; Bukayo Saka, Alexandre Lacazette, Gabriel Martinelli

Back to back toothless performances sees Arsenal top 4 chances dwindle

Arsenal top 4 dwindle

Another horrible showing sees Arsenal chances of finally finishing top 4 massively dwindle

It was yet another bad day at the office as Arsenal chances of finishing top 4 took a massively dwindle. The Gunners were best positioned in years to finally land themselves a Champions League spot.

With this 1-2 loss at the Emirates, Arsenal stay at 5th in the table and 3 points behind Spurs. Still, Arsenal have a game in hand but current form doesn’t favour the Gunners.

The game started off quite dull as neither team was able to have sustained periods of possession. Just as Arsenal was looking dangerous with a shot off the post and one blocked shot off Saka.

In the 28 minute, a long ball and cut back topped off by a perfect finish by Trossard gave Brighton the lead. Half chances continued to fall to both teams till the one hour mark.

At the 66th minute, a well worked move by Brighton topped off by an exquisite volley by Enock Mwepu saw Arsenal dead and buried.

A brilliant freekick by Martin Odegaard almost went in as it bounced back after hitting the crossbar, but the Norwegian pulled a consolation goal later.

A minute before the 90th minute, the No. 8 shot from way outside and with a deflection, the ball went top left corner. Although, the attacking midfielder did not celebrate the goal.

The upsetting result has left the fans divided and separate sections of fans are blaming different people involved.

Look at what Mikel Arteta had to say about the loss tonight:

Unlike the previous loss away, fans are furious with the team’s performance and are aiming their anger toward the coach.

This seems as if Gunners have regressed from the progress Arteta and Arsenal had made earlier this season. Hopefully, Arsenal can manage top 4 and their chances of it won’t dwindle further.

Arsenal will now face Southampton away next week on Saturday, stay tuned!

Injury update on Partey as Tavares speaks out after Palace disaster

Partey injury

Arsenal issues injury update on Thomas Partey after he came off against Crystal Palace

The club has issued a fresh update on the injury Thomas Partey sustained. The 28 year old suffered a thigh injury against Crystal Palace towards the end of the game.

His injury’s evolution will apparently determine his comeback, as the club’s statement didn’t specify any timeline.

This is what Arsenal’s official website had to say:

“Our No. 5 was substituted during Monday night’s game against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park after aggravating his right thigh.

Thomas has since received further assessments, and a subsequent scan has shown muscle damage to his right thigh.

We will continue to assess Thomas in the coming weeks, during which time he will also receive further specialist consultations.

Everyone will be working hard to get Thomas back on the pitch as soon as possible.”

However, we can definitely make our own estimations about the holding midfielder’s return date. Thomas Partey had suffered a similar thigh injury in last season’s North London Derby, which kept him out for nearly 4 weeks.

If this thigh muscle strain is the same or at least similar in nature, we can expect him to stay away for nearly a month. Could possibly be more, but hopefully not.https://twitter.com/sr_collings/status/1512096241018097664?s=20&t=GbwuHR1-cZS8lYTAWTBeGQ

Nuno Tavares has spoken after the team’s and his horrible showing against Crystal Palace

The Portuguese left back was one of the worst performers on the pitch for Arsenal on Monday in what was arguably their worst performance of the season.

The defender’s dull attempt at getting the ball from a set piece helped Palace set up their first. Not only this, he committed a grave error along with Gabriel when the duo were caught massively off guard for Eagles’ second.

His message on twitter for fans was a mixed one as he tried to accept the team’s bad performance. But, also at the same time tried to move on and motivate fans and players to keep fighting.

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.
