One key player will not be playing for his country in Arsenal anymore as he experiences injury today

Injury concerns for Arsenal extend to loanee Albert Sambi Lokonga as well as their first team.


Mikel Arteta has experienced a recent rash of injuries for Arsenal, the most recent of which even affected players outside of his first-team roster. Early in the season, the Gunners were shorthanded in some areas due to the absences of Jurrien Timber and Thomas Partey.

It has become worse over the past week or so, starting with Gabriel Martinelli missing the ensuing games against PSV Eindhoven and Tottenham after having to be replaced during the first half of the Everton encounter. Leandro Trossard, who took his place, also missed the North London Derby after being hurt in practice.


The problems didn’t end there either, as Declan Rice had to be replaced at halftime due to a back injury. Bukayo Saka was later replaced in the second half and was shown walking with a limp as Arteta declared him doubtful for the upcoming match against Bournemouth.


Overall, it leaves the team with a little shortage and makes them curse their injury luck, which seems to have spread beyond the first picks as well. Albert Sambi Lokonga, a season-long loanee with Premier League newcomers Luton Town, is the most recent to make progress.


He has made two appearances so far, playing against Fulham and Wolves as he seeks to demonstrate his ability to play for the Gunners in the future. His most recent injury, along with the Hatters’ absence of a crucial player for crucial games against Everton and Burnley, may, however, stall that progress.

He wrote on Instagram, “I thought it was my time to enjoy playing this beautiful game called football and work hard helping my teammates to reach our goal as a team… ” Unfortunately, a mishap caused everything to be delayed. During that period, I’ll be concentrating on my recovery while also helping the team. I’ll see you in a few months. God is always merciful.
