‘There is a chance’ – Arsenal give injury update on three key players before Man City fixture

Mikel Arteta has provided a status report on Gabriel Martinelli’s physical condition prior to Arsenal’s upcoming Premier League fixture against Manchester City. The Brazilian has been absent from playing since sustaining an injury during Arsenal’s 6-0 victory against Sheffield United earlier this month.

At first, his injury was described as a minor laceration on his foot, but subsequently Martinelli was absent from the matches against Brentford and Porto. Following the victory in the Champions League against Porto, the 22-year-old was observed using crutches and subsequently withdrew from the Brazilian national team during the international break.

There are other players besides Martinelli who may not be able to play in Sunday’s game. Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Magalhaes withdrew from international duty due to injury concerns.

“Indeed, there is a possibility,” Arteta responded when questioned about the potential for the three players to participate in the upcoming weekend.” “They have not undergone any training.” Tomorrow we have another session, however there is a possibility that they may be available.

Manchester City has received three injury blows prior to their meeting against the Gunners, as both Kyle Walker and John Stones have been officially ruled out for the game. Manager Pep Guardiola informed the reporters that both players will be absent from the encounter. However, he also mentioned that numerous team members had resumed training.

“Ederson is superior,” he stated. “Kyle and John have left.”

Ederson was unable to participate in City’s most recent encounter because of an injury he sustained during the draw against Liverpool earlier this month.

Guardiola also addressed Kevin De Bruyne’s challenging season. “De Bruyne has faced a challenging season due to injuries,” he stated. “He has been absent for an extended duration. His training session yesterday was quite effective. In the upcoming days, we will observe his actions.
