Arsenal need a mixture of extreme luck & three top quality performances in their last three games if they want to win the Premier League title this season, however today certainly wasn’t the luck they needed.
The Gunners need Manchester City to lose one & draw one out of their last four games to go on and lift the Premier League trophy this season. It’s going to take an incredible slip up from Manchester City for Arsenal to go on and win the Premier League title from this point, however, stranger things have happened and it’s not over just yet…
Today wasn’t the luck Mikel Arteta would have been looking for though as David Ornstein of the Athletic has confirmed both William Saliba & Oleksandr Zinchenko will miss the remainder of the season through injury.
William Saliba hasn’t featured for the Gunners since the 16th March after injuring his lower back in the Europa League tie against Sporting. The Gunners haven’t looked the same at the back since the Frenchman’s injury, however recently Jakub Kiwior has come into the side and produced two very promising performances which will give Arsenal fans hope for the remaining three games.
Oleksandr Zinchenko joins William Saliba on the sidelines with the Ukranian picking up a calf injury during the victory against Newcastle United last time out and it’s been confirmed both won’t feature for the club until next season.
Neither will, apparently, require surgery and after the lengthier lay off, Arteta will surely hope that Saliba comes back as good as new in 2023/24.
Mohamed Elneny is the third player that will not feature for Arsenal again this season. Although the Egyptian is back on the pitch for the first time this year, his return date is set for pre-season ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.
It appears Jorginho, Jakub Kiwior and Kieran Tierney will all have big parts to play in the Arsenal team for the remainder of the season. The Gunners face Brighton this weekend, before travelling to Nottingham Forest and finally ending the season at home to Wolves come the end of the month.
