Mikel Arteta says he is worried about player burnout amid a frantic season for Arsenal which has given very little time to rest between matches. The 2020-2021 campaign has not gone as smoothly as Arsenal fans might have hoped after seeing Arteta deliver the FA Cup and Community Shield last summer. The Gunners have slipped to 11th in the Premier League standings after 18 fixtures, ten points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, and 13 adrift of current leaders Manchester United.

When asked if his players are at risk of exhaustion due to this season’s congested schedule, the Spanish head coach told his pre-match press conference: “Yes. We have been trying to manage it, but the reality is that the fixtures are what they are and we didn’t have a pre-season, which is why – and we’ve talked about it many, many times – one of the reasons we wanted the five subs.”
