Arsenal news: Mikel Arteta sent message by “phenomenal” talent amid timely injury boost

The Arsenal boss has been encouraged to hand one fringe player more first-team minutes while also receiving a timely injury boost before a trip to West Ham on Sunday

Mikel Arteta reviews Liverpool draw

Now that the dust has settled on Arsenal’s 2-2 draw away at Liverpool on Sunday, Mikel Arteta is likely to have filed it as a good point gained and shifted focus to the next fixture.

That just so happens to be another away clash, albeit a significantly shorter one as the Gunners visit their London rivals West Ham on Sunday afternoon. While there has been plenty of discussion over Arsenal’s trips to Manchester City and Newcastle later on in the season, Arteta knows his side can ill afford to have any more slip-ups in this thrilling race for the title.

He’ll be heartened by his team’s away record this term, with Arsenal proving they are one of the best at getting results on the road so far this season ahead of their game in east London.

With that being said, Mirror Football has identified some of the main headlines and talking points centred around Arsenal on Friday, April 14.

Gunners deputy goalkeeper Matt Turner has praised Arteta – but admitted he wants to be playing more games for the club after a season as Aaron Ramsdale’s back-up.

“I show up to training with the right mentality,” the USA international told CBS Sport. “I work really, really hard to improve in the areas I need to. I’m trying to compete to get onto the field.

“I think Aaron Ramsdale and I have become better goalkeepers from challenging each other.

“Obviously, he is having a great season and is making big saves in big moments. I can’t really complain with where I stand but I am working really, really hard.
