Newcastle v Arsenal: the injuries, recent games and the video collection

by Bulldog Drummond

Our injury list has shrunk once again…

Player Reason Further Detail Potential Return Condition Status
Kieran Tierney Knee Injury Apr 28: “He’s been working like a beast every single day. I don’t know if he’s going to make it tomorrow but he certainly wants to be as close as possible.” 02/05/2021 Late Fitness Test 50%
Alexandre Lacazette Thigh Injury Apr 21: “He will continue to work with the medical team and will be assessed ahead of next week’s matches.” 02/05/2021 Late Fitness Test 50%

… and there are no surprises there.

Physioroom however tell a different tale concerning Newcastle United…  I rather like the way Joe Willock is listed – it makes it sound more like an emotional outburst rather than a regulation.

Player Reason Further Detail Potential Return Condition Status
Jamaal Lascelles Ankle/Foot Injury Apr 16: “Jamaal is frustrated as hell and is in a boot unfortunately. He needs time but he hasn’t ruled himself out of the season yet so let’s hope he can have a speedy recovery.” 23/05/2021 None Ruled Out
Joseph Willock Other Unable to Face Parent Club 07/05/2021 None Ruled Out
Fabian Schar Other Apr 30: “Fab wants to be involved straight away; he might make the squad but we have to be careful because he’s been out for nearly 11 weeks. He’s trained well and he’s there or thereabouts.” 02/05/2021 Late Fitness Test 50%
Matt Ritchie Calf/Shin/Heel Injury Apr 30: “We’ve got a slight doubt about Matt Ritchie. He’s got a bit of a calf injury but we think he’s going to be OK [for Sunday].” 02/05/2021 Late Fitness Test 75%
Ryan Fraser Groin/Hip/Pelvic Injury Apr 23: “He had an operation on his groin a week ago. He’s recovering now, and is going to be [out for] at least another two or three weeks.” No Return Date None Ruled Out
Karl Darlow Knee Injury Apr 23: “Karl unfortunately has had to have a small operation on his knee so he’ll be out for a few weeks.” No Return Date Currently Being Assessed Ruled Out
Isaac Hayden Knee Injury Mar 23: ‘Isaac will miss the rest of the season with a significant knee injury but will not require surgery’. No Return Date None Ruled Out

We’ve had a really good run against Newcastle in recent years with just one defeat in the last 17 games, and every other match a win for us.

If you would like to see some videos of past glories in this series you can find them on the AISA Arsenal History Society website: Arsenal against Newcastle: the video collection (inc the 7-3 win!)

Who Scored point out that “Newcastle have only lost one of their last eight Premier League matches,” and that includes getting points from “tottenham, West Ham, Aston Villa and Liverpool”.

They also tell us that Arsenal could “remarkably finish in the bottom half of the table in the Premier League.”

I wonder what  the people who paid for planes to fly over Arsenal matches demanding the end of Mr Wenger’s time at Arsenal have to say about that, having got their wish.

More anon.

    I do not see any reasons whatsoever, nor find one as to why Arsenal will not beat Newcastle in the PL tomorrow at their St James’s Park. And go 9th in the table above the one game in hand Aston Villa team.

    Therefore, since the 9th position in the table is now on offer for the taking, the Gunners should avail themselves with the opportunity to go 9th in the table and seize it by beating the Magpies to the collection of all the 3 points that will be at stake for collection in the match. And collect them and go 9th in the table at the close of proceedings tomorrow in the PL.

    I think the chance to play Europa League football next season for Arsenal through the Premier League 6th or 7th place finish is still ON and alive but not dead in the water.

    For, if Arsenal win all their 5 remaining matches in the PL this season, they could still get a ticket to play Europa League football next season. Which could become achievable for Arsenal at the end of this season’s campaign.

    Despite that Arsena are eyeing the possibility of them playing in the CL next season by winning the ELC this season. Which will come to fruition if they get past Villarreal CF at the 2 legged semifinal match stage of the competition.. And beat the likely to play in the final match Man Utd team to lift the trophy.

    But nevertheless, let Arteta, the Gunners and us Gooners not concern ourselves with the winning of the ELC for now to lose focus on the next business at hand of the Gunners beating the Magpies tomorrow. For, it is important for Arsenal to beat Newcastle tomorrow.

    Therefore, I advice Arteta and the Gunners to concentrate fully on their Newcastle match tomorrow and deal with it appropriately in such a manner that will see Arsenal triumph over Newcastle and return home with all the points in the match collected.

    In reply to Ben.

    Sometime ago The Romanian F A. Found corruption taking place in the Ref’s organization and for a few seasons Referees from other countries were eployed to offisiate Romanian league games.

    Note the freedom to publish the video in Romania. A freedom of speech not allowed in the EPL.
