Arsenal star Reiss Nelson breaks his silence with three word message after suffering injury against Juventus

ARSENAL’S Reiss Nelson has broken his silence with a three-word social media message after suffering injury.

The 23-year-old pulled up feeling his hamstring in the first half of Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat to Juventus yesterday.

It is the last thing that boss Mikel Arteta needed with the Gunners boss without Gabriel Jesus following knee surgery.

Fans were sweating on the extent of Nelson’s injury as the Premier League leaders prepare to return to domestic action on Boxing Day.

However, he seems to have offered a glint of hope that the damage will be nothing long-term as he took Instagram last night.

Nelson posted a three-word caption on his story that simply read: “Trust the process.”

Arteta had his fingers crossed it was nothing serious as he said: “We don’t know the extent of the injury.

“The fact that he had to leave the pitch straight away is not good news, especially with someone like Reiss, who is really powerful and fast. Let’s see what will happen.”

After spending last season on loan at Dutch giants Feyenoord, the winger is back in the fold at the Emirates this term.

He scored two in the 5-0 win over Nottingham Forest back in October and will be hoping for more once the top-flight gets back underway.

However, with Jesus’ sidelined, Eddie Nketiah will lead the line for the Gunners when they host West Ham on Boxing Day.

The striker has two goals across the four mid-season friendlies but missed a sitter against the Italians.

Arteta has no concerns about his ability to step up, saying: “Eddie is always ready, he knows that obviously, it opens up an opportunity for him with Gabi being out, and he needs to grab it.

“But the way he trains every day and the mentality he has, he gives us no reason to think that he is going to be anything but super-ready to perform.”
