Mikel Arteta conveyed significant injury boost ahead of Arsenal vs Brighton clash

Oleksandr Zinchenko, who plays fullback for Arsenal, was observed participating in practice on the day before the Gunners’ Premier League match against Brighton.

The international player from Ukraine suffered a knock during the match against Newcastle United last weekend, and some sources suggested that it was anticipated that he would be sidelined for the duration of the season due to injury.

But Gunners manager Mikel Arteta declined to confirm this, but he did concede that center back William Saliba is likely going to be sidelined for the rest of the 2022/23 season owing to a lower back ailment.

We have one more practice scheduled for tomorrow before the match against Brighton.

“We are trying to get players back for that day if they haven’t trained on the pitch but we will know more tomorrow,” Arteta said on Friday. “We will know more about the players’ conditions tomorrow.”

“In the case of William, it is certain that he will not be fit for this game, and we have reason to question that he will be fit for the game that follows this one.

But we want to maintain the belief that they will return, and we want to make sure that we give ourselves the best possible chance of doing so.

When the Spaniard was asked if it was certain that Zinchenko would be unable to play against the Seagulls, he simply responded by replying, “No.” Now, the excellent left-back has been photographed in training ahead of tomorrow’s encounter, which is a great boost for Arsenal.

If they win all three of their remaining matches this season, Arsenal would have equaled their best-ever points total in the Premier League.

Following their match against Roberto De Zerbi’s team in north London, Arsenal will travel to face Nottingham Forest at the City Ground the following weekend, and then they will welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to north London later this month.
