Gunners are mulling over fitness of Saka and Martinelli

Arsenal, the Premier League table leaders, are shifting their focus towards Europe as they prepare to host Bayern Munich at the Emirates on Tuesday for the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals. This article provides an update on team news and player fitness ahead of this crucial match.

The Gunners have been in exceptional form this year, which has propelled them to the top of the Premier League table. Their journey on a continental level has been equally impressive but challenging. They had to dig deep and fight hard against Porto to reach this stage of the Champions League. The team is eager to continue their European adventure and make a significant impact in these quarter-finals.

Saka and Martinelli still not fully fit for first leg

Bukayo Saka started over the weekend game, which was positive news for Arsenal fans. However, it's important to note that he is still not back at his peak performance level yet due to his recent recovery from injury.

Another player making strides towards full fitness is Gabriel Martinelli. He will most likely come off the bench during Tuesday's match against Bayern Munich as he continues his recovery process.

In more good news for Arsenal fans, Jurrien Timber has returned to training after recovering from an injury setback. His return provides manager Mikel Arteta with more options at his disposal when deciding upon his starting eleven for upcoming matches.

Arsenal may shuffle things after tiring Premier League week

While there could be some shuffling within Arsenal’s lineup for Tuesday’s game against Bayern Munich due to these recent developments regarding player fitness levels, it seems more likely that we will see a similar set of players who have contributed significantly towards their current run of form.

In conclusion, despite some ongoing concerns about player fitness levels - particularly concerning key players like Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli - Arsenal appears to be in a strong position ahead of their Champions League quarter-final first leg against Bayern Munich. The return of Jurrien Timber to training further bolsters the team's options, and fans will be eagerly awaiting Tuesday's match at the Emirates.
