After years of people calling for a Premier League winter break to be introduced, its introduction for the first time this season has hardly run smoothly or been received as expected.

Arsenal’s FA Cup run meant January was equally busy, so his side’s two-week break has finally given Arteta the time on the training ground he craved.

You will not, however, find any complaints from Mikel Arteta and Arsenal, who have just returned from a warm-weather training camp in Dubai ahead of Sunday’s match with Newcastle.



Arteta has returned from Dubai with a near fully-fit squad and a rejuvenated group who look ready for the challenge ahead.

The timing of it has been the biggest issue, with some arguing it has come too late given top players such as Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Marcus Rashford all got injured before their time off began.

There is also the fact it clashed with FA Cup replays, prompting Liverpool to field their Under-23’s against Shrewsbury, while Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho added “the break comes in the wrong moment” for Spurs as they do not have a clear run at their Champions League last-16 tie against RB Leipzig on Wednesday.
