Arsenal to beat Crystal Palace

Arsenal handed injury blow

Before taking on Crystal Palace, Arsenal have been handed some bad news on the injury front.

Oleksandr Zinchenko is a doubt for Arsenal’s clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The left-back has missed the Gunners’ last two games due to a calf injury and has been working on his recovery during their warm-weather training camp in Dubai.

Zinchenko is pushing hard to be back in time for this weekend, but if he is absent then Jakub Kiwior could continue at left-back. This is a big blow for the Gunners, whose form has taken a massive nosedive over the last several weeks.

It is added that Arsenal are reluctant to put a date on the full-back’s return and he will not be rushed back.
