Arsenal will be dealing with multiple selection headaches when they take on Bournemouth this coming weekend.
Since some of their star players have missed practise this week, the Gunners do indeed currently have a little injury crisis on their hands.
Rice, Martinelli, Trossard, and Arteta’s…
Although it’s unclear exactly who will miss this weekend’s games for the north London team, things don’t seem good.
Bukayo Saka is one player who might be out against the Cherries, and Jermaine Beckford of Premier League Productions says that’s troubling.
While many of Saka’s absences from Arsenal won’t be significantly felt, Beckford thinks that Saka will be missed because he is a magical player who can make anything happen and pull Arsenal out of a tight spot.
We shall miss Saka.
Regarding the winger and his injury, Beckford expressed his opinion.
While Saka is that small bit of magic and gold dust that can change a game in the blink of an eye, Beckford acknowledged that the absence of Saka would be missed. “It’s a little concerning, but in terms of personnel I don’t think it’s vitally important to have all of those players in there,” Beckford said.
Cross your fingers
All we can do is hope Saka is healthy enough to go into this match against Bournemouth at the beginning.
Although the Cherries aren’t exactly dominating the Premier League this year, they gave Arsenal a serious scare in this match last year, and they’ve only gotten better since.
Saka could be out, but fortunately for Arsenal, Reiss Nelson can take his place. Recalling the encounter between these two sides from the previous season, Nelson should be looking forward to this one after winning that thrilling late game all those months ago.
