Arsenal’s manager Mikel Arteta held a press conference today’s morning ahead of their next Premier League fixture against Manchester United this Sunday night at Old Trafford. The former Pep Guardiola’s assistant coach talked about the current injury situation in his team and the Red Devils’ recent form in the last couple of games.

When asked about the evolution of Martin Ødegaard and Aaron Ramsdale’s injuries that they suffered in their last match against Aston Villa, he said that they are still out for the moment, but will try until the last minute: “They are being assessed. We will see more tomorrow. Hopefully they will be able to train with the team”.

When he talked about Oleksandr Zinchenko, who hasn’t played in their last two games due to a knee injury he pretty much said that the Ukrainian won’t be available: “With Alex, unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to train with the team”. However, they still have Kieran Tierney as a backup left-back, so they should be well covered in that area.

The 40-year-old ex-footballer also said that he wasn’t surprised by Erik ten Hag turning around his bad start of the season with Manchester United: “When you look at the squad that they have, the amount of money that they have and what they’ve done in the market, I’m not surprised”.

Other injuries

Despite their perfect run in the Premier League this season, the Gunners are currently struggling with injuries. Besides his captain and starter goalkeeper being in doubt for Sunday’s game, Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny are completely discarded for their biggest challenge so far this season.
