EPL: Terrible news for Arsenal – Redknapp reveals Arteta’s major problem

 Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Jamie Redknapp has revealed that injured striker, Gabriel Jesus is Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta’s major problem at Emirates.

Redknapp said this ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League tie with West Ham United on Monday.

Arsenal are currently on top of the Premier League table with five points ahead of Manchester City, who are in the second position.

The Gunners suffered a huge blow during the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, with their first-choice attacker Jesus set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines through injury.

And Redknapp believes that Jesus’ injury has put Arsenal at a huge disadvantage heading into the second half of the 2022/23 season.

“The biggest disadvantage by far is Arsenal because of losing Jesus,” Redknapp told Sky Sports. “What that would do to the team, only time will tell.

“I think right now, that is a major problem for Mikel Arteta. He would have looked at that and thought, ‘out of all the players I didn’t want to lose, it would have been him’.

“It is not his goal. It is more what he does for the team. He goes and chases and presses. Wins the ball. Sets the tempo as a striker. He is a player they have not had for so long. And that is terrible news for this Arsenal team.

“How are they going to react? You are going to buy someone in the window. It is not as easy as that to find a player of his calibre.”
