Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has suggested Gabriel Martinelli’s injury is not as bad as first feared.
Martinelli has been sent for scans on Monday and the club is waiting for results.
The Brazilian youngster has been a breath of fresh air since returning to the side after his long lay-off, but he injured his ankle during the warm-up before Saturday’s FA Cup third-round victory over Newcastle.
Martinelli broke down in tears and ended up watching the game on crutches, but Arteta is optimistic that the injury will not sideline him for a significant period of time.
“Well we don’t know how bad it is, he’s getting a scan this morning.
“It didn’t look good after the game because he was in a lot of pain but yesterday he tested a little better.
“So let’s hope that we have a scan today, and it’s not as serious, and we can have Gabi back ready soon. But we will know more tomorrow,” Arteta told the media on Monday, ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.
