During the post-match press conference, Blackpool manager, Michael Appleton (via Football London) spoke about Patino’s injury:

“We look a little light in midfield now and that worries me a bit.”

“The injury to Charlie was a big blow because he was having a big influence on the game, he was playing his part.”

“It was quite badly swollen at half-time. We’ve got to get the swelling down and once we’re in a position where the swelling is under control then he can go and get it scanned.”

Charlie Patino rose through the ranks of Arsenal’s youth academy and is seen as one of their most promising youth prospects. Patino made his first team debut for Arsenal during a 5–1 EFL Trophy quarter-final victory against Sunderland, where he scored the final goal of the game at the Emirates.

Being hailed as one of the best young players emerging from Premier League clubs’ academies, Patino joined the Tangerines on a season-long loan for the duration of the 2022–23 season. The midfielder kicked off his loan spell in an impressive fashion and has made three appearances (stats via Transfermarkt) for Michael Appleton’s side so far.

The Hale end graduate has already created an impact at Bloomfield Road Stadium. Coach Michael Appleton is full of praises for Gunner’s hottest, young prospect. Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta hopes that this injury does not cause a major setback in the development of their young and talented star midfielder.
