Arsenal’s players and coaching staff have sent their best wishes to Julien Timber as he recovers from injury.
Arsenal hosted Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in London on April 22 for the second leg of their Premier League tie. The Gunners won the game 1-0 thanks to a goal from captain Martin Ødegaard. While the players were ecstatic about the valuable away win, they didn’t forget about Timber, who has been struggling with an injury.
Timber suffered an unfortunate injury in the first leg of the Premier League tie against Nottingham Forest at home on December 12. Timber, who started the game, fell to the ground just before the end of the first half and appeared to gesture to his knee afterward.
The look on Timber’s face indicated that he had suffered a very serious injury, so contrary to expectations that he would be subbed out at halftime, he played in the second half. However, he quickly went down again. Realizing he needed to be replaced, head coach Mikel Arteta immediately brought on Takehiro Tomiyasu.
After the game, the results of Timber’s scans were announced. Arsenal announced the news on the club’s official website that Timber had suffered an anterior 안전놀이터 cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. The reaction of the fans was overwhelming. The medical staff didn”t make an injury precautionary substitution at halftime.
Arsenal’s current wingback options are all injury prone. Aside from Timber, starting fullback Oleksandr Zinchenko has already been on the injury list this season. Substitutes Tomiyasu and Kieran Tierney are also injury prone.
Meanwhile, Arsenal, who finished second in the league last season after a breakout campaign, have gotten off to a flying start this season with two straight wins. The Gunners will look to make it three in a row when they host Marco Silva’s Fulham at the Emirates Stadium on Sept. 26.
