Arsenal’s defensive woes worsen as Chambers option grades out

first_imgAdvertisement 61NBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs9wd6Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E885a6e( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 6yrnq70Would you ever consider trying this?😱uu9nrxCan your students do this? 🌚bpRoller skating! Powered by Firework Arsenal’s problems in the defense have been heavily hit by long term, crucial injuries, and Unai Emery’s options in the back keep on running out. However, the situation has taken a turn for the worse as the option to recall on-loan Fulham defender Calum Chambers is not an option anymore. Advertisement Chambers signed for fellow Premier League side Fulham from Arsenal in August last year as part of a loan deal running for the whole of this season. The Gunners, being marred by injuries in all departments have looked much weaker all throughout the term. But having picked up some crucial ones in the back, with Hector Bellerin out for a long time and the recent ones of Sokratis Papastathpoulos and Laurent Koscielny against Manchester United in the FA Cup two days earlier, puts them in a tight spot.The option of recalling Chambers from Fulham was one prospect of saving some time until players return to full training. But that path appears to have been blocked as well.Advertisement Due to the clause of recalling Chambers back to the Emirates Stadium missing from his loan agreement with Fulham, Arsenal will be unable to retrieve the England national, and thereby taking a massive blow in the defense.Head coach Unai Emery will be relying on youngster Dinos Mavropanos for his talents in the back after his absence on the pitch since been injured back in pre-season last year.Advertisement Read also:-Arsenal target Sampdoria goalkeeper Emil Audero in the January transfer window Advertisementlast_img read more

Carlow (+20 points), who lead the way on scoring difference from Laois (+19 points), travel to Dungarvan on Saturday to take on Waterford who are second from bottom after picking up one of six points so far. Carlow beat Waterford by nine points in last year’s Allianz Football League.Laois, the Division’s top scorers on 5-46 (61 points), head for Aughrim to take on Wicklow, who have yet to score a goal (0-34).

This is the first time the counties have met in the Allianz Football League since 2011 when Kerry won by 0-16 to 0-8.Kerry suffered their first defeat of this year’s campaign when losing to Monaghan last Sunday, dropping them to fourth place behind Dublin, Galway and Monaghan on the table.Donegal v Kildare is a basement battle between the only two sides in the division who are yet to pick up a point. It will be the first time they have met in the Allianz Football League since 2013. Both sides are chasing their first win in six Allianz Football League games.
