Arsenal Talisman Opens Up as He Suffers Injury Setback: Huge Loss for Arteta’s Squad
Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah has recently suffered an injury setback, causing concern among the Gunners’ faithful. The striker has been playing through pain for a number of games, according to Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, but was forced to sit out the team’s 3-2 victory over Bournemouth last Saturday.
There are fears that Nketiah may be dealing with a fresh problem, as he had been filling in as Arsenal’s lead striker while Gabriel Jesus recovers from knee surgery.
According to a report from the Evening Standard, Nketiah missed the Bournemouth match due to an ankle injury and is expected to sit out Thursday’s Europa League fixture against Sporting Lisbon. His availability for Sunday’s Premier League match against Fulham is also in doubt.
Arteta will undoubtedly feel the absence of Nketiah, as he still awaits the return of Jesus to the Arsenal squad. However, Nketiah remains optimistic despite his setback, taking to Instagram to post an image of himself and the team celebrating a goal at the Emirates Stadium, accompanied by the caption: “Minor setback, major comeback!”
While Nketiah is likely to miss Thursday’s match, the Arsenal camp is hopeful that both he and Jesus will return to action before the international break.
Fans will undoubtedly be hoping for a speedy recovery for the promising young forward, who has made a significant impact since breaking into the Arsenal first team.
