Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Manchester United
By Ben Knapton, Senior Reporter | 1h
Arsenal seek to maintain their unbeaten start to the 2023-24 Premier League season when they host Manchester United at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

Mikel Arteta’s troops dropped points for the first time this season last weekend, drawing 2-2 with the 10 men of Fulham despite efforts from Eddie Nketiah and Bukayo Saka.

Prior to that four-goal stalemate, the Gunners had achieved slender victories over Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace, leaving them two points worse off than leaders Manchester City.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal’s injury and suspension news ahead of their clash with the Red Devils, who fought back from 2-0 down to see off Forest 3-2 last time out.

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: September 9 (vs. Man United)

Eddie Nketiah was reported to have suffered a knock to the knee in last weekend’s draw with Fulham, but the striker is not believed to be nursing a serious issue and should be passed fit for Sunday’s blockbuster battle.

Jurrien Timber

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

While Nketiah should be passed fit, the same cannot be said for Jurrien Timber, who will spend several months working his way back from the ACL injury he sustained on the opening weekend of the season.

Muhammed Elneny

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Completing a trio of knee-related injuries, Mohamed Elneny is yet to make his comeback from the operation he underwent in January, and it will be a little while longer before he is deemed matchday ready.

Arsenal have no players suspended for this match, as Takehiro Tomiyasu returns from the one-game ban he served against Fulham following his red card versus Palace.
