Arsene Wenger Reveals Flamini Injury Situation

Arsene Wenger spoke to the press after our win against Bournemouth and during his interview, he gave an update on the injury of Mathieu Flamini.

Before we played our game which we won 2-0 on Monday, the boss revealed that Flamini has an inflamed ankle injury and would not be able to make that clash. It happened as said and in his absence, Calum Chambers stepped into his slot in defensive midfield.

The Arsenal manager after the match gave the major reason why he completely left out the Frenchman from the squad. According to him, it was not as if the 31-year-old would have not been able to play at all but his exclusion was just a precaution to avert further damages.

Flamini looked stressed up during our 4-0 loss to Southampton so the manager deemed it proper to drop him when he noticed he was struggling with a minor ankle problem.

Wenger said, “He might be alright. I could have pushed him but he was a little risk so I decided not to take it because it was an inflamed ankle.”

Flamini might be available when Arsenal face Newcastle on January 2. He has got the next few days to get back to full fitness. However, the manager may still want him to have some more rest since Calum Chambers did so well when fielded against Bournemouth on Monday evening.

Speaking of his new role after the game, Chambers said, “I’m enjoying it. The past couple of weeks I have been training in midfield and I have been getting more confidence and I felt good and it was a great result and a great game.”
