There is a new injury concern for the Arsenal camp only days into November – a historically forgettable month for the club in recent seasons.
The Gunners are usually troubled by injuries towards this time of the year but there has been an improvement made in that department so far this season as the club’s medical staff takes on new ways to avoid the age-old problem.
For the first team, only Per Mertesacker and Danny Welbeck have spent lengthy spells on the sidelines with Carl Jenkinson, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud now back from their injury lay-offs.
The likes of Hector Bellerin, Theo Walcott and Nacho Monreal have also handed Arsene Wenger some good news heading into this weekend’s Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur after managing to train on Thursday.
However, it appears that one of Arsenal’s promising youngsters is now facing some time out of action following a new blow.
According to a report by Jeorge Bird’s Arsenal Youth, Yassin Fortune is set to be sidelined by an injury which could keep him out for six weeks.
The report claims that the 17-year-old, who has been plagued by fitness worries for the past year, has suffered a recurrence of his hip problem.
Fortune’s absence is likely to be felt by the Arsenal youth team who are still struggling to bounce back from a disappointing start to the Premier Academy League this season.
