Arsenal handed triple boost ahead of Tottenham

Mikel Arteta spoke to the media on Friday afternoon ahead of Arsenal’s next outing.


Arsenal face off with Tottenham on Saturday afternoon at the Emirates.

Ahead of the match, Mikel Arteta discussed a number of topics in his press conference, including team news.

Arsenal have been handed a triple injury boost: “We just finished the last training session, we had many players arriving yesterday we had a short period to prepare the match but the boys look in good condition.

“They [Zinchenko, Partey, Tierney] are part of the team.”

But Emile Smith Rowe looks set to be out for some time: “After a surgery it’s very difficult to give a timeline. We need to go step by step. We know before the World Cup he’s not going to be involved.”

On Smith Rowe’s surgery, Arteta added: “We had to make a decision and we could not continue with that uncertainty. The player was the first one demanding that he wanted an end decision and then we have to support him on that.”
