Massive injury bow for Arsenal ahead of Chelsea clash, striker ruled out for four weeks

Tyreece John-Jules will be unhappy he has been ruled out of Premier League 2 action after his time on the pitch against Brighton & Hove Albion was axed when he confirmed he had a pained hamstring.

The Arsenal forward will be out four weeks, despite results about his injury coming back positive.

Arsenal will hope he can make a full recovery when they play their return fixture with Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on 15 February.

John-Jules entered the spotlight following a positive campaign last season for Gunners U18s and it was clear he was ready to step up the plate, prompting his promotion to the club’s U23s side.

John-Jules has had a total of seven goals and has registered four assists in 17 games for the North Londoners.

The striker, 17, has promised to get back on his feet as quickly as possible, aiming a big comeback.

The 17-year-old took to his Twitter handle after the unfortunate incident: “Working hard to be back stronger and better than before.”

His brilliant form has also earned him a call-up from Gunners senior team manager Unai Emery, who has invited the 17-year-old to train with the senior side.

The youngster was named in the Emery’s shortlist of first-team options in their Europa League group stage clash with FC Vorskla and Qarabag.

Arsenal host Chelsea at the Emirates this weekend, after dusting themselves off following their defeat to West Ham in the Premier League.
