Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has delivered a setback to fans ahead of the upcoming Premier League fixture against Sheffield United by confirming that Jurrien Timber will not be available for selection. The Dutch defender remains sidelined and is deemed unfit to feature in the upcoming match, as Arteta provided insight into Timber’s progress and the challenges he continues to face in his recovery.

Arteta expressed in his pre-match press conference, “Jurrien is still not close enough to be part of the squad on Monday. The physios are really happy with his attitude and commitment, and the way things have gone… he is in a really good place. Now we have to manage him. He has been a big miss,” shedding light on Timber’s ongoing rehabilitation efforts and the commendable dedication he has exhibited during this period of adversity.

Having been absent from the squad due to his injury woes, Timber’s absence has been felt by Arsenal, with his defensive prowess and versatility proving to be a valuable asset to the team. As the Gunners strive to maintain their strong position in the Premier League standings, currently occupying the third spot with 58 points garnered from 26 league encounters in the ongoing 2023/24 campaign, Arteta’s acknowledgment of Timber’s unavailability underscores the importance of managing the player’s recovery effectively.

As Arsenal gear up to face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Monday, the absence of Timber poses a challenge for Arteta as he navigates team selection and tactical preparations without the Dutch defender at his disposal. Despite Timber’s absence, Arsenal will look to rally together and secure a positive result as they aim to continue their push for success in the Premier League. Fans will undoubtedly be eagerly monitoring Timber’s recovery progress and anticipating his return to action in the near future.
