Arsenal face triple suspension risk with William Saliba set for a new task in West Ham derby
Arsenal return to Premier League activity on Boxing Day when they have West Ham United at the Emirates Arena, yet Mikel Arteta might need to be cautious with his team choice
Having arrived at the World Cup last with France there have been worries that the defender won’t be prepared to confront the Sledges, particularly while thinking about that the vast majority of the Gunners’ stars that highlighted in Qatar were given basically seven days off subsequent to leaving the competition.
In his pre-match question and answer session, Mikel Arteta uncovered that Saliba is expected back in Arsenal preparing in practically no time and may be in dispute to confront the Sledges as the adolescent could take motivation from international teammate Kylian Mbappe who has proactively gotten back to preparing with Paris Saint-Germain.

So, requiring the 21-year-old disciplinary record into account, it could entice Arteta to avoid the Frenchman with regard to a Premier League firing line-up interestingly this season just to safeguard him.
As affirmed by the FA in their ‘Data for Players on Disciplinary Systems’ 2022-23 season guide toward the start of the mission, any player who gathers five appointments before the endpoint of 19 matches should serve a programmed one-match boycott.
Presently, Saliba is the main Arsenal player in impending peril of being given a suspension as he has gotten four yellow cards hitherto in the Premier League this season, so he should tread carefully before long. Whenever booked against the Sledges he would miss the excursion to Brighton and Hove Albion five days after the fact.
Strangely, Gabriel Jesus would have been experiencing the same thing as the Frenchman had he not been precluded for perhaps as long as 90 days in the wake of going through knee medical procedure. In maybe what could be seen as a little something extra, when he gets back to activity he will at this point not be a suspension risk.
Somewhere else, Bukayo Saka and Ben White are on three yellow cards so they need to tread carefully over the happy period. While one more reserving against West Ham wouldn’t administer either out of the Brighton conflict – except if they are shipped off – in the event that either is reserved in every one of the following two games they would be suspended for the major event against Newcastle United on January 3.
Looking past Newcastle and the Premier League’s decision that ‘yellow cards are not extended to the EFL Cup or FA Cup’ with games against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United not too far off, the Arsenal manager might need to have words with his players, encouraging them to tread carefully concerning handling and difference.
With 14 games of the Premier League season gone, Saliba, Saka, White and the remainder of Arteta’s squad have another five gameweeks to stay away from a suspension. Obviously, with the mission set to continue following the winter World Cup, it will not be until after the Man United installation on January 22 that the Gunners come to the previously mentioned endpoint.
The following Arsenal players with the most yellow cards across the squad are Gabriel Magalhaes, Granit Xhaka and captain Martin Odegaard on two. In the mean time, Gabriel Martinelli, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Thomas Partey are on one yellow card, so ought to have the option to loosen up throughout the following couple of weeks.
