Arsenal have received some bad news ahead of their crucial match against Crystal Palace. The Gunners will be without their star defender, William Saliba, who has been ruled out for several weeks due to a back problem suffered during Arsenal’s Europa League 2nd leg knockout clash with Sporting Portugal according to L’Équipe.

Saliba was unable to finish the game and was subbed off, and Arsenal ended up losing the game in penalties, crashing out of the UEFA Europa League. This is a huge blow for Arsenal as they are currently in a title race and are sitting at the top of the Premier League table with 66 points after 27 games. They are closely followed by second-placed Manchester City, who has 61 points.

William Saliba has been one of the reasons why Arsenal is at the top of the league as he has started in all these matches. Aside from defending, he has also scored two goals and made one assist. His absence will be felt by Arsenal as they take on Crystal Palace in what promises to be a tough encounter.

Arsenal’s manager, Mikel Arteta, will now have to find a way to fill the void left by Saliba’s absence. The Gunners have a number of options at their disposal, including Rob Holding and Jakub Kiwior. However, neither player has been able to replicate Saliba’s form this season.

Despite this setback, Arsenal still has enough quality in their squad to get past Crystal Palace. They have been playing well lately and will be looking to continue their good form against Palace. However, they cannot afford any slip-ups if they want to maintain their position at the top of the table.

In conclusion, William Saliba’s absence is a huge blow for Arsenal as they take on Crystal Palace in what promises to be a tough encounter. However, they still have enough quality in their squad to get past Palace and maintain their position at the top of the Premier League table. It remains to be seen how long Saliba will be out for but his absence will certainly be felt by both Arsenal and France.
