PREMIER - Eight Arsenal players likely to miss match against Chelsea

When Arsenal takes on Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday, they might be without eight first-team players. Thomas Partey, Gabriel Magalhaes, and Eddie Nketiah are all injured and will miss this weekend’s match against the Blues.

COVID-19 kept Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Alex Runarsson, and Willian from playing last week. Lacazette and Runarsson are the only members of the foursome who have not recovered. Willian and Aubameyang may be subjected to late fitness tests ahead of the derby.

New signee Martin Odegaard is also out of the match because he has yet to acquire a work visa that allows him to play.
