Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has revealed that one key players might miss their crucial match against Manchester City on Wednesday night. William Saliba, who has been out of action for some time now, will definitely miss the game. However, there is still hope for Granit Xhaka as he is a doubt for the game.

Arsenal are currently in a title race as they sit at the top of the Premier League table with 75 points after 32 games. However, they are closely followed by second-placed Manchester City, who have 70 points and two games in hand.

The absence of Saliba and Xhaka could be a huge blow to Arsenal’s title hopes. Saliba has not been able to make any real improvement in his fitness, according to Arteta. The young defender has been out of action for weeks now due to an injury.

On the other hand, Xhaka’s absence would be a huge loss for Arsenal’s midfield. The Swiss international has been one of Arsenal’s most consistent performers this season and his presence in midfield is crucial for the team’s success.

Arteta remains hopeful that Xhaka will be able to train today and be fit for the game against Manchester City. However, if he fails to recover in time, it would be interesting to see who Arteta chooses to replace him in midfield.

“Hopefully he (Xhaka) will be able to train today. He’s still a doubt.” said Arteta telling reporters.

The game against Manchester City is expected to be a tough one for Arsenal as they face one of the best teams in Europe.

In conclusion, Arsenal will need all their key players fit and firing if they want to win the Premier League title this season. The absence of Saliba and Xhaka could be a huge blow to their title hopes, but Arteta will be hoping that his team can overcome these setbacks and continue their excellent form.
