Arsenal vs Molde: Pre-Match Team News and Injury Update

It’s back to midweek football again for the Gunners with boss Mikel Arteta hoping for a third straight win in the Europa League, ensuring Arsenal top the group before the November international break.

After victoriously coming through another match in the Premier League last weekend without any new injuries cases, Arsenal have now provided an injury news update ahead of the visit of Molde on Thursday evening.

With Arsenal currently topping the group with 6 points from two games, It’s certainly not too early to gamble on where the Gunners will finish at the end of the group stages, and if you’re interested in betting, check out new online casinos South Africa.

The Gunners had a couple of massive boosts for the trip to Manchester United, with two England internationals Bukayo Saka and Rob Holding both making their way back to Arteta’s starting lineup. They are seemingly fit again after their recent injuries earlier confirmed by the Arsenal’s official website.

Another huge positive news is that senior defender David Luiz is fit again and available for selection. He missed the Manchester United clash, but Arsenal have also confirmed that he is back in full training now.

Long term absentee defender Calum Chambers is also back in full training, but we don’t know exactly when he’ll return to action. Recovering from an Ankle Cruciate Ligament injury, we know how long it can take to get fully match fit again. But given the obvious need for fresh legs in defence, it may be worth placing a bet on his selection, just as you can enjoy online casino canada.

We now know for sure that defender Pablo Mari had a setback in his recovery, but he should be back in full training really soon, presumably, after the international break. The last update we had on November 4th was that he would return to full training after the November international break.

Sensational Brazilian youngster Gabriel Martinelli is back out on the grass playing with the ball again, integrating into group sessions, but he is still a way off a full return. Arsenal don’t expect him back until towards the end of the year. But we do know that he is itching to be back in action as soon as possible.
