Happy moment for Unai Emery as Key Arsenal player who could have been Arteta key to destroying Aston villa is now Injured – Walkover game for Unai Emery – Arteta title hope is now on the verge of Collapsing

Unai Emery finds cause for celebration as a key Arsenal player, who could have played a crucial role in thwarting Aston Villa, is now sidelined due to injury. Mikel Arteta’s aspirations for a title seem to be teetering on the edge of collapse.

Following a thrilling victory over Luton Town last night, Mikel Arteta disclosed unfortunate news about Takehiro Tomiyasu’s injury. Despite the Gunners clinching a dramatic win at Kenilworth Road with Declan Rice’s last-minute header, the joy was dampened when Arteta confirmed Tomiyasu’s absence.

Takehiro Tomiyasu, who stepped up impressively when Ben White was injured, has been among Arsenal’s standout performers in recent weeks. Despite White’s return to fitness, Tomiyasu’s stellar performances earned him a consistent place in the starting lineup.

Regrettably, Tomiyasu sustained a calf injury during the win over Wolves last weekend, initially raising hopes that it was a precautionary substitution. However, Arteta revealed the results of scans confirming significant damage, leading to an extended period on the sidelines.

Arteta shared the disappointing update, stating, “We had a scan, and it’s not good news. He’s got an injury in his calf, and he’s going to be out for a while,” as reported by Arsenal.com.

Tomiyasu’s absence will undoubtedly be felt by Arsenal, given his exceptional performances in various defensive roles. Having showcased his versatility as a standout full-back and providing cover in central defense, Tomiyasu’s absence leaves a significant void.

The Japanese international’s absence could be particularly crucial in the upcoming clash against Liverpool just before Christmas. With Tomiyasu being the most adept at handling threats like Mohamed Salah, Arteta may now have to rely on alternatives, possibly entrusting Alex Zinchenko to contain the Egyptian star in his absence.
