Hello everyone and welcome to football.london’s live Arsenal blog on Wednesday, April 6.
So far, it hasn’t quite been the best week for Mikel Arteta ‘s Gunners. They at first fell to a shocking 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday – a result that put a significant dent in the club’s hopes of returning to the Champions League next term.
Whilst the result was a damaging one in isolation, there were also some dire consequences that are sure to have a major impact on the remainder of the season. Kieran Tierney was ruled out of the game and it has now been revealed that he is likely to be restricted to the sidelines for the rest of the campaign. Meanwhile, Thomas Partey and Takehiro Tomiyasu are both dealing with their own problems.
With now just three days left to go until Arsenal take on Brighton & Hove Albion, we will be bringing you the latest fitness updates from the Emirates Stadium.
Away from on the pitch action, there remains plenty of speculation over the upcoming summer’s transfers and there appears to have been major developments in the futures of Darwin Nunez and Victor Osimhen.
With all of that being said, make sure you keep the blog locked so that you don’t miss a single update.
