Unfortunately for Mikel Arteta, three players are missing out due to the extra precautions being taken during the coronavirus pandemic, as Arsenal reported ahead of the game.

While Arsenal have no positive tests to report, as of now, they do have three absentees, such is the reality when you play football in the midst of a global pandemic.

Gabriel is perhaps the biggest loss for the Gunners. He’s been a shining light in what has been a season to forget for the team as a whole.

To lose him, not only for today, but for a total of three fixtures, is a significant blow to Arteta’s hopes of slowing the slump they find themselves in.
