Latest Arsenal Injury News: Updates On Smith Rowe | Partey | Elneny And Nelson
Smith Rowe, an offensive midfielder for Arsenal, is said to have suffered a muscle injury during the warm-down following Sunday’s 3-1 loss to Manchester United.
It is unknown at this time if it is a major problem or whether he will still be able to play against FC Zurich on Thursday night in the Europa League.
Partey’s return of a thigh issue is anticipated to keep him out for a few weeks. The Ghanaian has now been absent from the team’s previous three games, which included defeats to Fulham, Aston Villa, and United.
Elneny appears to be in for a lengthy stint on the sidelines. The midfielder from Egypt suffered a severe hamstring injury, and manager Arteta has already stated that he will be sidelined for “months.”
Reiss Nelson is still receiving medical attention, too. The winger started the season on the bench against Crystal Palace, but since then, a thigh muscle problem has kept him from playing.
Emile Smith Rowe, an Arsenal midfielder, apparently sustained a new injury on Sunday during the post-game warm-down session against Manchester United, according to David Ornstein.
The Gunners suffered a discouraging loss against the Red Devils as Mikel Arteta’s team was defeated 3-1. The 22-year-old entered this game as a substitute in the second half, taking the place of club captain Martin Odegaard.
David Ornstein reported on Twitter that Smith Rowe appeared to have suffered a new injury during the warm-down following the match versus United. The particular problem or the seriousness of the injury, however, were not mentioned by the The Athletic writer.

The midfielder was allegedly removed from the practice because he “looked disturbed,” according to the journalist.
While the other replacements finished their routines, he and the assistant coach Carlos Cuesta retired to the dressing room early.
“During Arsenal’s warm-up, Emile Smith Rowe seemed to pull up with an injury. The 22-year-old attacking midfielder appeared upset as Carlos Cuesta, the assistant coach for the #AFC, escorted him back to the dressing room as the other replacements resumed their practice.
Smith Rowe just made a full recovery from a groin injury he experienced during the preseason, so it is distressing to learn that he has already acquired another ailment. In order to ensure that this won’t be a long-term problem for the Hale End graduate, the Emirates faithful will be hoping.
The Gunners have been suffering more injuries in recent weeks. Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny are still out injured, and Oleksandr Zinchenko has just recently made a full recovery. The injuries are occurring at the worst moment since Smith Rowe is now also expected to miss time. The seriousness of the problem won’t be known until we receive the club’s formal confirmation, but it’s still a blow.
From now on, Arsenal will have to play twice weekly. They presently only have Lokonga, Xhaka, and Odegaard in their roster to play in the center of the pitch after failing to add additional bodies to their midfield department during the summer transfer window.
The good news for Mikel Arteta’s team is that Fabio Vieira, who joined Arsenal in the summer after suffering an ankle injury, has now officially made his debut for the club. The Portuguese player’s availability will be a significant help for the Spanish coach’s team after he came in against the Red Devils as a second-half replacement.
