Football News

According to Mikel Arteta, Gabriel Martinelli is required to sideline for a considerable length of time.

Gabriel Martinelli won’t play against Southampton on Thursday after Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has revealed that the striker will be out with a “months” knee injury

During training, Martinelli endured a thump, a minor cartilage fracture in his left knee on Sunday, and the Brazilian is set to experience further tests throughout the following barely any days.

Arteta said in a question and answer session on Tuesday: “We had some bad news in training again yesterday. Another player hit the last action he [Martinelli] got and he damaged his knee. The doctors are assessing the seriousness of the injury yet it doesn’t take a gander at all.

When asked to what extent the forward would not be available, Arteta said: “We don’t have a clue, however, it’s searching for quite a long time.”

Arsenal has also affirmed that Bernd Leno is precluded with a moderate ligament strain for as long as about a month and a half. Defender Pablo Mari will return in a few months and won’t play for the remainder of the campaign. Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Granit Xhaka have come back to regular training.

Leno was extended off with a knee injury before half-time at the Amex Stadium on Saturday during Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton.
