Arsenal is going to finish this Premier League season in the fourth place. That was actually their goal before the season as with their top four rankings, the gunners will be able to take part in the next edition of the Champions League. However, what is more important for them is that they will take part in the final for the FA Cup. If they can get this cup, this season could be described as a strong one for Arsene Wenger’s team. After New Year he had to deal with many injured players, which led to a drop in the shape of the team. At one point, there was even a danger of failing to qualify for the top 4, which finally didn’t happen.
Here’s the list of all the injured players who will miss the match for Arsenal: Vassiriki Abou Diaby, Serge Gnabry, Ryo Miyaichi, Kieran Gibbs, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. It is very difficult to guess what would have happened if all of them were able to help the team throughout the season. Aaron Ramsey, who is another player who most likely would miss the match, but he still has some chances to participate.
Arsenal is in a series of good results and won its last four matches in the Premier League.
