Amidst the excitement surrounding Arsenal’s upcoming clash against Manchester City, journalist Chris Wheatley has delivered some promising news for Gunners fans. After a lengthy battle with injury, defender Jurrien Timber could soon make his long-awaited return to the squad.

Timber, who suffered an ACL injury during Arsenal’s first game of the season, has been sidelined for an extended period. However, Wheatley’s recent update suggests that the Dutch defender is nearing a comeback and could potentially be named in the squad to face Manchester City.

“He’s very close,” Wheatley revealed. “He’s hoping to be involved in one of the upcoming games. He could be named in the squad for Man City, it’s always a possibility.”

The prospect of Timber’s return comes as a boost for Arsenal, who currently lead the Premier League table with 64 points from 28 league games in the 2023/24 campaign. With Timber’s defensive prowess and leadership qualities, his inclusion in the squad could provide valuable depth and stability to Arsenal’s backline.

Despite facing formidable opposition in Manchester City, Arsenal remains buoyed by their recent success, including a dramatic victory over FC Porto in the UEFA Champions League round of 16. As they prepare for their next challenge at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, 31st March, 2024, after the international break, the potential return of Timber adds an extra layer of anticipation to the matchup.

As Arsenal fans eagerly await further updates on Timber’s fitness and potential involvement in the squad, the prospect of his return serves as a beacon of hope and optimism for the remainder of the season. With Timber on the cusp of a comeback, the Gunners are poised to face Manchester City with renewed determination and resolve.

I enjoy football so much and I am in love with Arsenal Football Club. I always watch the matches and will always give you my opinions about the game here.
