Arsenal fans have been enjoying a great run of form lately as they look to win their first Premier League title in 17 years. However, ahead of Saturday’s match against Leeds United, they might have to make do with a key player missing out due to injury.

Reports from football.london suggest that William Saliba is set to miss the game due to an injury he picked up during Arsenal’s Europa League loss to Sporting Lisbon two and a half weeks ago. The Frenchman had to withdraw from the game due to the injury, and it is now clear that he won’t be available for selection for the Leeds United game.

This will be a big blow to Mikel Arteta, who has come to rely on Saliba for his excellent defensive qualities. He has started in 27 league games for Arsenal this season, helping them maintain their position at the top of the table with 69 points after 28 games.

For many Arsenal fans, the news of Saliba’s injury is concerning, especially given the team’s current form and the fact that they are in a title race. As things stand, the Gunners are leading the table, but they are closely followed by second-placed Manchester City, which has 61 points plus a game in hand.

Despite this setback, Arsenal fans will hope that the team can still pull off a win against Leeds United on Saturday. With or without Saliba, the Gunners have plenty of quality players who can make a difference on the pitch. Plus, the team has already shown that they can adapt to injuries and changes in personnel throughout the season.

As Arsenal continues its bid for a Premier League title, fans will be watching anxiously to see how this latest injury affects the team. But one thing is certain: no matter what happens, the Gunners will fight to the end to claim the top spot in the league.
