Forward Gabriel Martinelli had an eventual opening, he scored an opening goal, but it was ruled out by VAR for offside. Three three minutes later, he was withdrawn with a hamstring injury. He limped from the field and looked to be in pain. He is unlikely to play in the match in the Champions League three days later. He may return on Sunday, September 24, 2023, in the match against Tottenham.
Thomas Partey was ruled out of the match that the Gunners won against Manchester United before the international break. He continues to be on the sidelines. Arteta admitted that Partey was still “a few weeks” away from a return. He may make a comeback in October.
The silver lining is that Mohamed Elneny will be back in contention soon. He has resumed the training after undergoing knee surgery. Though he is not the biggest part of the first-team squad, Arteta saw value in the Egyptian international. He may join the squad in October.
Arsenal signed Jurrien Timber in the summer with the hope that he may fill the gap created by an injured Thomas Partey. But he suffered a serious injury on his Premier League debut. The Dutchman tore his knee ligaments while playing against Nottingham Forest last month. He may join in the summer of 2024.
