Episode details

Soccer Boogeyman

The CannonStats Podcast is back looking at the news on Bukayo Saka that he might nursing an Achilles injury. Unsurprisingly Mikel Areta has downplayed the severity but that doesn’t mean people still aren’t worried about it. Here is what he said in his press conference:

He’s fine. He trained normally today so nothing to report there. Every player has pains or issues. That’s normal in elite sports, but nothing to worry about.

With the news coming out Adam took a look at what that means for his minute’s load, and how other teams have dealt with playing time for their young talisman.

That transitions into how much rotation should Arsenal look to do with the Champions League coming back starting next week and a run of 7 matches in 22 days. It is a big run for Arsenal to keep the goals for the season within reach and will tell us quite a bit on how much Arteta plans on using his squad.

Last a look ahead to Arsenal’s trip to Everton, where things have not gone well for Arsenal going winless in over half a decade.

All that and more on the latest CannonStats podcast.
