'I swear to god': Some Arsenal fans believe club are 'cursed' after update on 21-year-old

Roberto Martinez has admitted that Albert Sambi Lokonga missed last night’s Belgium match due to a small injury.

Speaking to Walfoot, the Red Devils manager said that the Arsenal midfielder was left out of the clash against Belarus because of a knock the 21-year-old picked up in training.

Lokonga made his senior debut for Belgium this international break. But the youngster’s game time was limited due to this injury ahead of the final match of the period.
