Arsenal’s Victor Moses suffers ankle injury, halting 86-match EPL streak
English Premier League (EPL) Arsenal striker Victor Moses is in danger of being sidelined with an ankle injury that could end his streak of 86 consecutive league games.
According to the BBC on Sunday, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said “it’s a possibility” when asked if Sakho would miss upcoming league games.
Xhaka was subbed off with an ankle injury shortly before the end of Arsenal’s 2023-2024 EPL Round 6 match against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in London, England, on April 24.
Arteta said, “After the game, Xhaka limped badly. We had to take him off the pitch,” Arteta said. “He couldn’t take part in training, which is never a good sign.”
The absence of Xhaka, who has four goals and four assists in eight official games this season, including three goals and two assists in six league games, will have a significant impact on Arsenal’s scoring output.
The Gunners have two upcoming matches, a League Cup third-round tie against Brentford on Oct. 28 and an EPL seventh-round trip to Bournemouth on Oct. 30.
Not only will it affect the team’s performance, but it will also put the brakes on Xhaka’s pursuit of the record.
If Xhaka doesn’t play against Bournemouth, his streak of 86 consecutive EPL games, dating back to May 9, 2021, will be halted.
This is the longest streak ever by an Arsenal player.
The previous EPL record 먹튀검증 for consecutive appearances is 164 by Frank Lampard (retired – Chelsea).
