Arsenal handed double injury blow ahead of Newcastle trip

Arsenal duo could miss Newcastle game

Arsenal handed double injury blow ahead of Newcastle trip

15 May 2022 - 20:15

Arsenal have been handed a double injury blow with Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes absent from first-team training on Sunday.

  • Arsenal prepare renewed bid for Lisandro Martinez
  • Premier League attacker pushing for Tottenham transfer

  • The Gunners suffered a bitter blow at Tottenham Hotspur in midweek with Rob Holding picking up a red card while Gabriel sustained a muscle injury.

    Gabriel is now facing a race against time to make the game and the same appears the case for White, who is nursing a minor hamstring problem.

    According to, both centre-backs were missing in Sunday's training session and are big doubts for Monday's visit of Newcastle.

    The Gunners go into the game with just one fit centre-back in Takehiro Tomiyasu, who has largely played at right-back since joining the club.

    Granit Xhaka has played at the heart of the defence in the past, and the Swiss could be called upon to partner the Japan international tomorrow.

    The Gunners must beat Newcastle on the road to reclaim their fourth spot in the league. Else, their Champions League destiny won't be in their hands.
