Injuries can change the course of a game, and Arsenal’s manager, Mikel Arteta, is closely watching the fitness of key players as they prepare to face Chelsea in a London derby. Arteta has provided an update on the conditions of Bukayo Saka, William Saliba, and Leandro Trossard ahead of the crucial match.
Mikel Arteta concern on three players:
Three players from Arsenal had to leave their national teams because they were not feeling well. Bukayo Saka and Leandro Trossard had problems with their legs, and William Saliba had a sore big toe. Many Arsenal players were playing for their countries in the last ten days, and the coach, Arteta, wants to check if these players are fit for the next game against Chelsea.
Arteta said, ‘We don’t have many players right now. We will have our first practice today, and after that, we will know if these players are okay to play.’ He has an idea of who will start the game, but he wants to see how everyone feels after traveling and playing a lot.
Bukayo Saka really wants to play. Arteta is sure of it. Saka has been working very hard to get better and play against Chelsea. He needed treatment and practice to be ready. Arteta also said that Saka needs to be mentally and physically ready to play. He has to show he’s ready for the game.
William Saliba had a problem with his toe for a while now. The club wants to make sure he gets better. They hope it won’t happen again.
When Arsenal plays against Chelsea, it’s very important to have these players ready. Arteta and the fans are hoping these players will be fit and can help the team win.
