2. Declan Rice injury concern?

We just can't have anything good, can we? With the game well in hand, Arsenal was crusing, but the football gods decided to intervein.

Declan Rice, who has been a pillar of outstanding production this season, was taken off with an apparent hamstring injury in the second half.

Arteta stated post-game that Rice felt something in his hamstring, and the club decided not to take any risks. Given how important he is to the Gunners' setup, hopefully Rice won't miss any time.
