Arsenal Suffer Double Defensive Injury In Europa League

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Arsenal suffered a double injury blow during their Europa League clash with Sporting as defenders William Saliba and Takehiro Tomiyasu departed the field after just 20 minutes.

The Gunners went ahead in 20 minutes with Granit Xhaka finishing coolly after Gabriel Martinelli’s initial shot had been saved by Antonio Adan.

However, Japanese international Tomiyasu, 24, injured himself by sliding in to make a tackle on Francisco Trincao after eight minutes as Ben White came on to take his place.

French centre-back Saliba, 21, then went down 12 minutes later at the Emirates Stadium, with Rob Holding as his replacement

But now there is an opportunity for Ben Whites to show Gareth Southgate what he is missing out on.’

Arsenal have the chance to open an eight-point lead over Manchester City in the Premier League title race on Sunday.

The Gunners host a Crystal Palace side without a win in any competition in 2023 and will see it as a gilt-edged chance to really turn up the heat on Pep Guardiola’s champions.

In the last four league meetings with Palace at home, Arsenal have drawn three and lost the other.

This season feels different with Arsenal showing no sign of faltering in their quest to de-throne City.
