Arsenal ace Mohamed Elneny has been ruled out for two to three weeks after picking up a hamstring injury.
The club released the latest team news about the £5m Egyptian on their website ahead of this weekend’s clash with Norwich City on their website.
The only other notable absentee from the Gunners squad for this weekend is Granit Xhaka, who is serving a three-game ban. The Swiss ace picked up a red card in the 5-0 defeat to Manchester City two weeks ago.
Meanwhile, Arteta confirmed in his pre-match press conference that Sead Kolasinac will be assessed.
Other than that, the club has a clean bill of health to contend with. Thomas Partey, Ben White, Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Magalhaes have all returned from their various injuries.
Elneny injury could help Patino breakthrough into the Arsenal first team
Whilst injuries are never a good thing, this particular one can help a youngster.
Charlie Patino seems to be on the cusp on breaking into the first team.
Patino has been receiving mass praise after his performance earlier in the week against Swindon Town.
It’s not outside the realms of possibility he breakthroughs into the Arsenal first-team after the injury suffered by Elneny.
The Carabao Cup tie at home to Wimbledon is coming up. It could provide Arteta with the perfect opportunity to blood Patino.
Reiss Nelson took to Instagram to tell fans to ‘remember’ his name, in a stunning show of support of the starlet.
The 18-year-old has been playing well in recent weeks, and he could be rewarded for it.
