SAD!! Arsenal handed big blow ahead of important City game on New Year Day



Arsenal vs Manchester City

Arsenal handed big blow ahead of their important fixture against Manchester City on New Year’s Day.

Ahead of the north London match on New Year’s Day against Manchester City, the Gunners are still behind Liverpool and Chelsea in second and third place respectively.

With the Reds and the Blues playing each other the following day, one or both would certainly drop points, meaning that the Gunners could find themselves just two points off of the top three if they are able to continue their own good form against a strong Pep Guardiola’s side, who are also in good form.

However, they’ve been hit with a big blow, few days before the scheduled date for the match.

Back in March last year, Mikel Arteta’s positive Covid-19 test result was the one which finally, and some might say caused, the Premier League to stop football until further notice.

As it turned out then the Spaniard recovered well, but unfortunately the recent Omicron variant of the coronavirus has seen Arteta return another positive test.

Arsenal Boss, Mikel Arteta tested positive to Covid for the second time.

According to Arsenal official website, the manager is now in isolation and has received the club’s well wishes.

What it means, is that he’ll be unable to direct operations from the dugout during Saturday’s encounter, and that may have negative impact on his side.

Meanwhile Man City boss will be looking for his side to continue their impressive epic winning run, that will see them move 12 points clear on the top of the table if they’re able to emerge unscathed in both the Arsenal and Brentford games
