Arsenal suffers major setback before Porto clash as exceptional player fails to attend training.



Arsenal’s preparations for the upcoming Champions League match against Porto have been disrupted as Gabriel Martinelli, a key player, was absent from training this week. This setback adds to the challenge for the Gunners as they aim to overturn a one-goal deficit in the crucial game.


Gabriel Martinelli’s absence from training this week is a setback for Arsenal ahead of their important Champions League match against Porto.


It seems unlikely that he will be able to make a return for this game, as he also missed the previous match against Brentford. This is a significant blow for the Gunners, as they already face the challenge of overturning a one-goal deficit in the Champions League.


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will have to find a way to cope without Martinelli’s presence on the field.


Martinelli’s Injury Concerns Continue Ahead of Porto Clash

The Brazilian Forward Spotted Using Crutches

According to reports, Martinelli was seen using crutches after the match against Sheffield United, indicating that he was unlikely to feature in the game against Brentford. Despite hopes that Arteta was simply being cautious, it was noted that Martinelli did not participate in training on Monday.


As Arsenal prepares to face Porto in the Champions League, Martinelli’s absence from training the day before the match raises doubts about his availability. This setback adds to the challenges the Gunners face as they aim to overturn a one-goal deficit and progress to the next round.

Arteta has praised Martinelli as ‘exceptional’ and he is considered a crucial player for Arsenal as they strive to win the Premier League title. The fans at the Emirates Stadium are hopeful that the young forward will not be sidelined for too long due to injury. The upcoming match against Manchester City, who are also in the race for the title, would be a significant disappointment if Martinelli is unable to play.


On the other hand, Gabriel Jesus, Thomas Partey, and Oleksandr Zinchenko, who were all part of the squad that faced Brentford, have had their fair share of time on the sidelines in recent months. Arteta is carefully managing their fitness and gradually building them up. According to a report from Football London, the trio trained normally on Monday, unlike Martinelli.


This is a major boost for the Gunners, especially after their defeat in the first leg against Porto, where they lost 1-0. Arteta is eager to have a fully fit squad at the Emirates as they aim to progress to the next round. However, it seems that Martinelli will not be available for the upcoming matches.
