Despite the fact that Arsenal won all three points against Burnley, Arsenal fans should hope that their concerns about what happened in the final 15 minutes are unfounded. Both Thomas Partey (75th minute) and Kieran Tierney (78th minute) were withdrawn in the final 15 minutes of the Burnley game, with their substitutions speculated to be due to minor injuries sustained during the game rather than a need to introduce some quality from the bench.
Although no official information has been relayed about the extent of the injuries sustained by the two, all eyes and ears will be on Arsenal's media team to relay information about whether they are minor knocks or are going to sideline them for a while.
Losing Partey and Tierney will be a step back in the direction Arteta needs to go. Partey commanded Arsenal's midfield perfectly against Burnley, playing as a typical no. 6, while Tierney was high-flying on the left wing, leaving Arsenal fans amazed at what a player they got from Celtic.
Arsenal face Tottenham next in the PL, but the question is, can Arsenal outwit Tottenham if one or both of them miss that game? Please leave your thoughts in the section below.
