Arsenal are reportedly working hard on the fitness of Gabriel Jesus. Both of the players are currently struggling with injuries.
Hence, both of the players are a doubt for the Europa League game against Bodo/Glimt. They are also a doubt for the Premier League game against Leeds United.
INJURIES ARE THE LAST THING ARSENAL WANT
Arsenal are reportedly working hard on the fitness of their two-star players. The two-star players are Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko. Gabriel Jesus was heavily fouled in the Liverpool game. Hence, he was substituted by Eddie Nketiah. Whereas, for Oleksandr Zinchenko, it is his old injury. The left-back continues to suffer from his calf injury.
Hence, the Arsenal medical team will have to work hard to get their fitness up. However, the report also confirms good news. The report claims that Gabriel Jesus has passed a fitness test for the Bodo/Glimt game. However, he did not train on Wednesday as a precaution. Although, Zinchenko is yet to recover from his injury. Hence, questions remain about the fitness of both players.
THE GUNNERS SHOULD GIVE THE FRINGE PLAYERS A CHANCE AGAINST BODO/GLIMT
The best idea for the Gunners at the moment would be is to give rest to the stars for the Bodo/Glimt game. Arsenal are currently top of the table in the Europa League. Hence, they are expected to qualify for further rounds in the European competition. The Gunners have already given chances to fringe players in the first two Europa League games.
Hence, it should not be difficult for Mikel Arteta. Even if Gabriel Jesus and Zinchenko pass the fitness test, they should not play against Bodo/Glimt game. This will also keep them fit for the Leeds United game. The new signings made by Mikel Arteta has given the club squad depth. Hence, the Spanish manager should take advantage of the squad depth.
Arsenal will be hoping for an easy game against Bodo/Glimt. However, the Europa League games can also bring some surprising results. They will also be hoping for a positive result against Leeds United. A win against them will keep the Gunners at the top of the Premier League table.
