Big injury updates for Arsenal
Arsenal have provided injury updates on several players ahead of their clash with Watford, including Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney.
The Gunners haven’t had an ideal start to the season in relation to injuries.
Summer signing Kieran Tierney is yet to start a game this season due to an ongoing injury problem.
The Scottish left-back hasn’t even played a competitive game since May.
Meanwhile, fellow full-back Hector Bellerin has not featured since back in January, after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury.
Rob Holding has also been out with an injury, having ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in a 2-2 draw with Manchester United back in December of last year.
Now, Arsenal have provided an injury update on all three players.
Several players on track for September return
In a statement released on Arsenal’s official website, the club revealed that Holding is back in full training with the squad.
That could even put him in contention for the clash with Watford on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are targeting a September return to training for Hector Bellerin.
Their statement claims that Bellerin is ‘continuing with on-field rehabilitation’, and is ‘progressing well and aiming to participate in full training in September.’
The same timescale is given for Kieran Tierney, with Arsenal also suggesting that a return this month is possible for the Scottish left-back.
Finally, Arsenal also give an update on youngster Dinos Mavropanos.
They reveal that, like Tierney and Bellerin, the player is aiming to return in September.
