For their Premier League match against Newcastle United on Saturday, Arsenal will be missing three of its senior players.
Another injury setback has been dealt to Arsenal ahead of their Premier League matchup with Newcastle United on Saturday night (kickoff at 5:30 p.m.).
After ruling out Thomas Partey and Gabriel Jesus for the trip to St. James’ Park, Gunners manager Mikel Arteta has now stated Emile Smith-Rowe will miss weeks of time due to injury.
With five changes made by Arteta, the 23-year-old was predicted to start last night’s 3-1 Carabao Cup loss at West Ham United. This season, Smith-Rowe has made eight appearances.
Following the game, Arteta stated, “He’s going to be out for weeks due to a knee injury.”
Arteta also disqualified Jesus and Partey, two players valued at £90 million, from the trip to Tyneside before to the cup exit at the London Stadium.
Jesus sustained a hamstring injury in Sevilla last Saturday, which prevented him from playing in his team’s 5-0 victory over Sheffield United, where Eddie Nketiah scored a hat-trick.
Speaking prior to the cup match, Arteta remarked, “With him, I’m honestly not going to put any because I did it once and got it totally wrong” confronting West Ham United.
“We must treat it properly, so we must exercise caution. It’s excellent that he’s already pushing everyone and wants to return as soon as possible because we need him.
Due to a muscle issue, Partey has only appeared once since August.
Arteta continued, “I think he will be out for weeks; I’m not sure how long, but he has another appointment today, so we will see more after that.”
“It is quite concerning because we have witnessed the outcomes and the influence that Thomas has had when he is available, healthy, and a member of the team.
We are better protected this season, especially because we are aware of the previous
What occurred and how it affected the team over the course of two seasons. That needed to be addressed, and it has finally taken place.
“I’m very sorry for him because I believe he is doing everything in his power to be there, but it happens in sports. He was devastated, and we support him, but he needs to get back up and play again because he is an important player for us.
Sandro Tonali, Alexander Isak, Jacob Murphy, Elliot Anderson, Sven Botman, Harvey Barnes, Javier Manquillo, and Matt Targett are among the nine first-team players anticipated to miss out for Newcastle.
