AFCON Upsets Potentially Impact Gunners Premier League Campaign

The AFCON has already delivered surprising results. Top teams like Nigeria, Egypt, and Ghana struggled in their opening matches. These upsets could significantly affect Arsenal and other clubs in the Premier League. Key players from Liverpool and West Ham are also in the Premier League.

Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah with Egypt stand out among these players. Their teams’ progress in AFCON could impact their availability for the fixture between Arsenal and Liverpool on February 4th. It coincides with the AFCON quarter-finals.

Egypt’s Performance and Its Implications for Arsenal

Egypt, with Arsenal’s Elneny and Liverpool’s Salah, only managed a draw against Mozambique, raising questions about their tournament prospects. Their performance could significantly impact Arsenal’s upcoming match against Liverpool.

Arsenal faces a dilemma with Elneny’s involvement in AFCON. While his success is a point of pride, Salah’s extended participation could benefit the Gunners in their clash against Liverpool. However, Egypt’s unpredictable performance means Arsenal can’t rely on Salah’s absence.

The Gunners must prepare for all outcomes, including the possibility of facing Liverpool with Salah. The situation is dynamic, and Arsenal needs to strategize for various scenarios. Moreover, the Gunners’ defense could easily hold down Arsenal’s offensive without Salah at the forefront.

Ghana’s Struggles and Potential Impact

Ghana’s loss to Cape Verde has added to the AFCON shocks. The Gunners are monitoring Ghana’s performance closely. This is due to their upcoming game against West Ham, who have Mohammed Kudus, a Ghana squad member.

Ghana’s upcoming match against Egypt is critical for both teams. Moreover, the result will influence their tournament fate and could affect Kudus’s availability against the Gunners.

Ghana’s path in AFCON is uncertain after their opening defeat. Nevertheless, their progress, or lack thereof, could play in Arsenal’s favor for the upcoming match against West Ham.
