Just when the London giants think things can’t get any worse, one of their senior footballers has tested positive for Covid-19 whilst on international duty. Arsenal have endured an awful start to their 2021/22 PL season, having played three and lost three.
With no goals to their name either, they sit rock bottom of the English top-flight before the next round of games. It’s odd to think of the fourth match of a season being a ‘must win,’ but that’s exactly the scenario facing the Gunners given that their next opponents are Norwich City who sit directly above them in 19th position.
The Spanish manager has been backed to the hilt in the transfer market, and his new signings have to hit the ground running if the Gunners want to this campaign to be a success.
Granit Xhaka was already missing for the Norwich fixture because of his wild lunge in the Man City match. The Swiss should’ve hopefully finished his isolation by then, after being the player that tested positive for the virus.
It’s through that he’ll take another test tomorrow to confirm things, while there’s no word yet on his current status in terms of being asymptomatic or if he’s struggling.
