Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has provided an update on the injury of midfielder Declan Rice, who was substituted in the second half of Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby.

After the game, Arteta revealed to the media after the game that Rice had to be taken off due to discomfort in his back. The exact nature and severity of the injury are yet to be determined, but it is clear that Rice was unable to continue playing.

The match itself was an intense affair, with both teams fighting hard for victory. Arsenal took the lead twice, first through a fortunate own goal by Tottenham’s Romero, which came from Bukayo Saka’s curling effort. However, Son Heung-min equalized for Spurs after calmly finishing off a cutback from James Maddison.

In the second half, Arsenal regained their lead when Saka converted a penalty after Romero was penalized for handball following Ben White’s close-range shot. Despite their efforts, Arsenal couldn’t hold on for the win as Son once again found the back of the net with an assist from Maddison.

With this draw, Arsenal now sits in fifth position on the Premier League table with 14 points from six league games. While they would have hoped for a victory against their rivals, they can take some solace in maintaining an unbeaten run so far this season.

The injury to Rice will be a concern for Arteta and his coaching staff. The midfielder has been an influential figure for Arsenal since joining the club and losing him to injury could disrupt their plans going forward. However, Arteta did not provide any further details about Rice’s condition or how long he might be sidelined.

As fans await more information about Rice’s injury, they will hope for a swift recovery and return to action. In the meantime, Arteta will need to assess his options and find suitable replacements to fill the void left by Rice’s absence.

Overall, while Arsenal may feel disappointed not to have secured all three points against Tottenham Hotspur, they can take some positives from their performance and look forward to upcoming matches as they aim to climb higher up the Premier League table.

I just love writing and football so much ever since the 2000's when football got popular in our country. I am a self esteemed person who believes is am always right.
