Arsenal have been dealt a blow after their 0-1 victory over Burnley with two key players picking up injuries.
Although the Gunners won their second consecutive win at Turf Moor, it wasn’t all good news.
Thomas Partey, Kieran Tierney, and Thomas Partey were both knocked out by the referees before the game was over.
Mikel Arteta already has a series of injuries in his squad, including an outbreak Covid-19.
Tierney reportedly suffered from cramp and is now a doubt for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup tie against AFC Wimbledon at the Emirates.
Nuno Tavarea replaced the Scottish international after 78 minutes.
Partey had already left the pitch three minutes earlier, and Ainsley-Mainland-Niles was brought on to replace him.
The injury-prone midfielder, who joined the club from Atletico Madrid last summer, has been a constant struggle.
Partey has just recently recovered from injuries to his knee and ankle.
Partey’s performance in the middle of the field was well-received, despite his short appearance.
The Gunners appear to have overcome an unfortunate start to the season.
After three losses in their first three games, they were at the bottom of the Premier League and headed into the first international break.
Where will Arsenal finish this season? We’d love to hear from you in the comments.
Since the resumption domestic football resumed, they have won two of their two matches.
First, they saw off Norwich, which was jokingly dubbed as a relegation six pointer, before their victory against Sean Dyche’s side.
They won back-to-back victories thanks to Martin Odegaard’s great free kick.
Arsenal’s next test is a North London derby against Tottenham at the Emirates, where Arteta will need everyone possible at his disposal to try and make it three wins in a row.
