A fresh insight into the potential availability of Arsenal defender Ben White for the club’s next outing has been provided on Saturday.
Mikel Arteta’s troops will of course be back in action in just shy of 24 hours’ time.
Amid the club’s ongoing pursuit of a Premier League top-4 berth, the Gunners are set to welcome Leeds United to the Emirates, for a Premier League clash.
Arsenal head into the clash in the knowledge that a fourth successive victory could potentially guide them not only five points clear of north London rivals Tottenham (set to face Liverpool later today) in 5th, but also to within a solitary point of Thomas Tuchel’s stuttering Chelsea in 3rd.
As such, it goes without saying that Arteta will be hopeful of having as many of his key performers as possible fit and available to feature on Sunday.
One such player, however, as alluded to above, who looks set to miss out against Leeds comes in the form of Ben White.
Stopper White had long been viewed as something of a doubt for the clash, after being forced to sit out the club’s win over West Ham owing to a hamstring injury.
Hope had since remained that the English international would ultimately recover in time to take to the pitch at the Emirates tomorrow, but such a scenario is beginning to look increasingly unlikely.
This comes with White having not been spotted amongst Arsenal’s first-team players to have taken part in first-team training in north London this afternoon.
