Arsenal game could be off, they’ve asked for it to be postponed.
Mmm, have a suspicion we could be trying it on a bit here. A postponement would be ideal for us even if we could get a side out.
Why have arsenal requested a postponement? They've only got one player out with covid haven't they?
So one out with covid, a bunch of injuries, players at afcon, and a fair few out on loan. Hmm, something something kidsWe had five first team squad members on the bench last night; two players went off injured during the game, Xhaka is now banned and Chambers is also possibly injured. So down to 12 first team squad members total, if neither Tomiyasu nor Smith Rowe have recovered.
As of last night, it is 12 players missing variously for injuries, Afcon and Covid. And that's assuming any others haven't tested positive since too. Looked tight as of last night, not surprised a postponement has been requested.
