Arteta received good news from Rice and Timber

Two important news from Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber will create a big boost for Arsenal.

Declan Rice sounded the alarm in the 5-0 win over Crystal Palace last Saturday when he left the field with a hamstring injury. Mikel Arteta hoped Rice’s injury was not serious when he was asked about the England midfielder’s condition. Early signs suggest that the former West Ham United captain will be available for next week’s match against Nottingham Forest. Watch Arsenal live at

The presence of Rice, who only has a muscle strain, will certainly be a significant boost for Arsenal, as the Gunners continue to lose Thomas Partey for a long time.

In even more positive news, Jurrien Timber continues to make impressive progress in his recovery from a knee ligament injury.

The summer signing from Ajax has caught the eye in pre-season with some extremely encouraging performances, especially against Manchester City in the Community Shield. Having recovered from surgery, the Dutch international can now train with the rest of the first team for the first time since August.
