Arsenal performed another week without their star players Thomas Partey and Gabriel Jesus. After a dramatic Premier League week, Arsenal are still at the top of the League. Arteta’s squad have again managed to reclaim the top spot after a tough few games. And they have managed to do so without the services of Gabriel Jesus and Thomas Partey. They are both regarded as key players of the squad. This obviously speaks of the confidence and ambition that the Gunners side is feeling right now. However, the Gunners side will definitely still be eager to get both of them back soon. In Premier League, however, things can change in a heartbeat. Jesus and Partey had helped the team to perform with consistency until recently. But as things stand, Arsenal have still managed to perform well without Gabriel Jesus or Partey.
Arteta provides an update on Thomas Partey, Gabriel Jesus, Saka, and Elneny
Arsenal’s star boy Saka had taken quite a few hits in the dramatic match against Aston Villa. He was even seen limping at the end of the game. However, Mikel Arteta have now confirmed that Saka is not injured. He is very much available for the match against Leicester City. While Jorginho’s arrival in the midfield has helped the team immensely. The absence of Thomas Partey cannot be understated. The player missed both matches against Manchester City and Aston Villa. The midfielder however is set to return for the match against Leicester City this weekend or by next week for the match against Everton. But for Gabriel Jesus, Arteta have confirmed that the Brazilian is still not there to join the team back. Last month Jesus had hinted that he could make a return in five-weeks. That would mean that he could be back by early March.
But Mohamed Elneny had undergone knee surgery earlier this month. Therefore he is set to miss out on the rest of the season. Both Emile Smith Rowe and Reiss Nelson were available in the squad for their win against Aston Villa. Even with that, the fans would be hoping that the key players of the team would make a quick return.
