Journalists suggests that Arsenal might face major injury problems in the last few months of this season. The Gunners might face a huge problem if they suffer another injury in the defense. Arsenal are currently on top of the Premier League table. However it could just take another injury in the defense to throw them off track. The Gunners are currently eight points off Manchester City. However both sides are yet to meet each other in the second part of the season. It could be deemed as the most crucial game in the Premier League this season. Arsenal defender William Saliba sustained an injury in the match against Sporting Lisbon. The club have confirmed that the young player would be out for a few weeks now. This news have devastated many Gunners fans. This a huge blow to the Gunners side.
Arsenal could bid the title goodbye with just another injury
Rob Holding had started in place of Saliba in the Arsenal 4-1 win against Crystal Palace. But another injury in the Gunners defense could see them waving the title goodbye this season. Manchester City are able to deal with these problems because of the squad depth. However Arsenal do not have the same advantage here. Journalist Paul Brown have suggested, “I think they’re probably one defensive injury away from having quite a major problem. They will be sweating on the rest of the season and how it goes to make sure they can keep the rest of their key men in place.” The Gunners will face a tough spell after international break. In April they will be facing Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City along with some other teams. The fixtures against Manchester City and Chelsea will be in a span of three days.
It will definitely be exciting for the neutral fans but for Arsenal, each of these matches are going to crucial. Keeping all their key players fit should be their major concern as of now. The Gunners will just have to take one match a day and go ahead with it. If they continue with their ambitions they might as well win the title this season.
