In a serious crisis in all aspects, Arsenal also received great losses when the London Derby with Chelsea was very close.
Referring to Arsenal at the moment, people who watch football live just shake their heads. The Gunners are having a series of 7 unsuccessful Premier League matches, in which they receive up to 5 defeats. In the middle of last week, the Emirates Stadium team also officially said goodbye to the Carabao Cup arena when Man City beat at home with the score 1-4.
At the end of this week, Arsenal will continue to play at home and face another heavy challenge called Chelsea. This is also a match that receives the attention of people who watch football live in the Premier League round 15.
If you can not beat Chelsea in this match, the future of coach Mikel Arteta will be in real danger and the Gunners can completely fall to the bottom 3 team. On the contrary, a win in a Derby game as meaningful as Derby London against the Blues could be a doping dose to help the Gunners come back stronger in the near future.
For these reasons, Arsenal considers the great battle against Chelsea to be of key significance. However, they continued to receive unhappy information before the ball kicked off.
Arsenal’s No. 1 striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was injured during a training session last weekend and has been absent from Arsenal’s recent two games. Although coach Arteta said the injury that the Gabon striker suffered was not too serious, according to the medical department, Aubameyang still needs at least 2 weeks to fully recover. This means that the Gunners No. 1 striker last season will almost certainly not be able to attend the Derby tomorrow night.
The remaining unfortunate absence is the blockbuster Thomas Partey. The Ghanaian midfielder was injured in the defeat to Tottenham three weeks ago and he still does not know exactly when he can return.
With these two absences, the person watching the football live has less basis to believe that the home team can beat Chelsea to improve their position on the standings. However, besides the unhappy news, Arsenal also received positive signals in terms of force. Specifically, young striker Gabriel Martinelli was diagnosed with an injury that was not too serious and could still play against Chelsea. In addition, midfielder Granit Xhaka is also ready after serving a three-match suspension.
