Arsenal handed boost as Manchester City duo Ederson and Kevin De Bruyne could miss West Ham United clash

Arsenal head into the last day of the 2023-24 Premier League campaign in second place in the table, two points behind Manchester City after Pep Guardiola’s side secured a 2-0 victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last night.

However, the Gunners can still win their first league title since 2004 on Sunday if they beat Everton and Man City drop points against West Ham United.

Arsenal have been handed a potential boost as Guardiola confirmed last night that Brazil international goalkeeper Ederson and Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne both picked up knocks against Spurs.

They could now be without two of their key players for the must-win Premier League fixture on the final day of the season, which could favour the Gunners in the long run.

De Bruyne was withdrawn after a challenge kept him on the pitch for a few minutes and he now has a problem with his ankle.

A collision with Cristian Romero left Ederson with a swollen eye following a kick, with Stefan Ortega replacing him as he could not see properly.

While the German made crucial saves to deny Spurs an equaliser, Guardiola would prefer to have Ederson in goal against the Hammers, but the Brazilian is now a concussion doubt for the game.

De Bruyne provided his tenth league assist of the campaign last night, and being without him will be a huge blow for Man City.

However, it is a potential boost for Arsenal who are feeling desperate heading into Sunday.

They will fancy their chances against an Everton side with nothing else to play for this season, but they need a favour from West Ham, and the Hammers could get something facing a Man City side without De Bruyne and Ederson.

It is all to play for on Sunday, and the Gunners will hope the stars align.
