Mikel Arteta confirms Arsenal damage enhance with three key gamers returning
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has confirmed that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Kieran Tierney are available for selection against Villarreal.
The Gunners have been plagued by injuries lately and many of their first teams were absent last Friday because of the clash with Everton.
Lacazette, Aubameyang, Tierney, and David Luiz were among those who did not travel.
With a decisive clash between the Europa League and Unai Emerys Villarreal on Thursday, Arteta gave Arsenal a boost in time.
Arteta told Arsenal’s official website: “They are all controversial. All of them. Including Aubameyang, Laca and Kieran. They all fight for the game. Yes [it is good news]. ”
“I don’t know if he is [Tierney] will make it tomorrow, but he definitely wants to be as close to this football field as possible to give himself the best possible chance.
“We need them [Aubameyang & Lacazette] because we know we have some players who are competitive and they are the ones who can make the difference in a big draw like this.
“But the word risk, I don’t like putting players on the field when they can’t perform and they can’t feel confident that they can perform. If it’s a risk or we’re gambling then I don’t think it’s the right thing to do. “
SL View – Could these returning players give Arsenal the boost they need?
Despite some poor performances, you have to sympathize a little with Arsenal.
The Gunners saw three of their key players in Aubameyang, Lacazette and Tierney at a crucial point in the season.
Tierney in particular is possibly Arsenal’s most formidable player since joining Celtic.
The Scot offers a long range attack in the arsenal with his impressive crossover ability, good finish and comfortable defensive play.
Arsenal’s attack was also slowed down by the absence of Aubameyang and Lacazette as the Gunners failed to score after 14 shots against Everton.
With these four players, Arsenal have a good chance of beating former manager Unai Emery on Thursday.
