Hakimi BOOST, Tierney RETURN, N’Dicka and Firpo links, Partey on Arteta

MORNING ARSENAL FANS

The Gunners dropped out the top ten after Leeds beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at Elland Road last night.

Arsenal are now a point behind the Yorkshire side ahead of their mouth-watering clash at the Emirates on Sunday.

Elsewhere, skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was blasted for being ‘anonymous’ this season by Tony Cascarino.

The 31-year-old Gabonese has scored just eight times in 22 appearances this season.

After the Gunners went down 1-0 to Aston Villa on the weekend, Cascarino said on talkSPORT: “The biggest disappointment for Arsenal is when you see two players that come on, who have been quality… Willian was poor, he kept giving away the ball and Aubameyang.

“These are two top-quality players who have done a hell of a lot in football that came on and made no impact at all.

“Aubameyang, I didn’t even know he’d really come on. He’s been far too anonymous this year as a player because he is a player that Mikel Arteta can’t afford for him not to change games and make things happen.”

And finally, the Premier League has announced the latest round of Covid-19 testing yielded just TWO positives results – despite nearly 3,000 tests administered.

A whopping 2,930 tests were administered to players and staff members from all 20 clubs in the week of Monday, February 1 to Sunday, February 7.

And stunningly, only two positive tests were returned.

An official statement read: “The Premier League can today confirm that between Monday 1 February and Sunday 7 February, across two rounds of testing, 2,970 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19.

“Of these, there were two new positive tests. Players or club staff who have tested positive will self-isolate for a period of 10 days.

“The Premier League is providing this aggregated information for the purposes of competition integrity and transparency. No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League and results will be made public on a weekly basis.”
