Just a quick news round up for today to explain what’s going on. First off, Arsenal’s injury haunting continues as Szczesny and Koscielny have both pulled out of training. They will both miss the match against Nagoya Grampus Eight tomorrow. Szczesny reportedly has a lower back injury while Koscielny has a right ankle problem. They are both important players, as you I have never felt to confident when Fabianski is playing. Still, it is uncertain what the extent of the injuries actually is.
Tomorrow is the game against Arsene Wenger’s former club, Nagoya Grampus Eight. I would expect for the game to be more difficult than the ones that we have already played this preseason. There are a few players that have impressed me so far, one of whom is Gedium Zelalem. The boy’s passing in the past couple of games has been very reminiscent of Fabregas. The way that he unlocks defences at such a young age is really quite incredible. I would hope that he would get a run out tomorrow. Another player who I am sure is going to get a good run out is Ryo Miyaichi. He has been unlucky with injuries since he joined the club, which is unfortunate because Wenger had high hopes for him. I hope that he will be fit next season and show what he is capable of, but he is really going to have to impress in the next few games if he is going to give Wenger reason to put him in the starting XI. It would also be interesting to see if Wenger loans him out with all the talk of getting a new striker. We will just have to wait and see.
Thanks for reading, have a good rest of your day.
