Nelson set for sideline spell after knee injury


Reiss Nelson will spend the next few weeks in the treatment room after suffering a knee injury.

It doesn’t appear to be too serious, with James Benge of Football London suggesting he’ll only be out of action for three weeks.

Given that we’ve got a two week gap until our next Premier League game against Sheffield United on October 21st, that’ll eat up a good chunk of the absence.

Whether he’s fit enough to be considered for our Europa League clash with Vitoria at the Emirates remains to be seen.

Nelson has scored once and provided two assists for the Gunners this season, but in recent weeks appears to have been overtaken a bit by Bukayo Saka. In that sense the injury is a bit unfortunate for him, but with more Europa League and Carabao Cup football to come, he’ll have chances to impress again.

He has withdrawn from the England U21 squad, but Joe Willock and Eddie Nketiah are both still with the squad.
