While the injury list at Arsenal does seem to finally be easing, although we have heard that before a few times this season, our situation is still a lot worse than almost any other club in the Premier League. And it always seems to be that we meet clubs at just the wrong time.
This weekend, for instance, Mesut Ozil is probably not quite ready to return and Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey are still very doubtful to be able to make the squad, according to the latest injury news on Physioroom.com. At the same time, Stoke City look set to have two of their five injured players fit and available again.
And our luck does not look like improving the following week, as we travel to face the reigning champions Man City. They are currently having to do without three of their most important players in Vincent Kompany, Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero, but guess what? Not just one, but all three are pencilled in to be ready to return against the Gunners.
Physioroom.com have the Argentinean international striker rated as doubtful but a report in the Daily Mail now claims that their star man has stepped up his training after a positive medical check. Perfect timing eh, Arsenal fans? If we didn’t have bad luck we would have no luck at all.
