Two Arsenal defenders could return for next game after an injury
Arsenal coach has provided a positive updated on injured Gunners duo Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin, which comes at an excellent time given that the London club are ready to face some tricky tests in upcoming weeks.
Arsenal are to take on both Tottenham and Liverpool by September 1st, two tests that will give fans a good indication of how the Gunners are going to fare this campaign.
The London club are going to need all of their best footballers fit and available for these clashes if they are to get at least one win from them, and it seems like Arsenal may have that given this recent update from Spanish tactician.
Unai Emery gave an update on Rob, as he stated that “I want to have very competitive players in each position, with David Luiz, with Holding when he is coming to help us, training regularly and playing minutes. He is going to play tomorrow for the Under-23s.”
Spaniard also gave an update on Hector, with Emery noting that “also Hector Bellerin is coming back, I think one month more”, news that will give surely Arsenal fans confidence for the campaign ahead.
Gunners back-line is comfortably the weakest area of their squad, and the London club are going to need to all the help they can get if they are to stop both Spurs and Reds scoring a few against them in the coming weeks.
Although it doesn’t seem like Bellerin will be back for either the Reds or Spurs game at first glance, if the 24-year-old defender were to speed up his recovery.
