No Diaby! Arsenal saving him for Chelsea clash?

With a sudden injury crisis hitting Arsenal in the central midfield area like an unexpected punch in the stomach, I was hoping that Arsene Wenger would be able to call on our France international Abou Diaby, as the long legged Frenchman continues on the road to resurrecting his Arsenal career.

But in the latest team news and injury update reported by Arsenal.com, the boss poured cold water on that, at least for the Champions League clash with Galatasaray this evening anyway. It is not such a disaster, I suppose, as Jack Wilshere has passed a fitness test and is available to start alongside Mathieu Flamini in the centre.

Wilshere hands Arsenal BIG champions League boost – Is Jack back?

There is some great news for Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger today, as Jack Wilshere took part in the training session at London Colney, as reported by ESPN, to prove that fears that his turn of an ankle in the north London derby on Saturday would leave him on the sidelines with our captain Mikel Arteta and last season’s Player of the Year Aaron Ramsey.

Not only is this a real boost for the Gunners in a difficult week, with a home tie in the Champions League against Galatasaray followed by a crucial Premier League away day at Chelsea, but it could be seen as the end of Wilshere’s terrible run of bad luck with injuries.

Are Arsenal’s injury problems just BAD LUCK after all?

When we saw the Arsenal team sheet for the Capital One Cup game against Southampton last week, we knew that the Gunners would be up against it with the Saints having a great start to the season and able to pick more of their first choice players. But we understood.

After all the problems Arsenal suffered with injuries last season, Arsene Wenger accepted that he sometimes over played certain players and he brought two new experts to the club in the summer to help him to avoid a repeat of the situation this season. So resting the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta seemed like a risk but the right thing to do in looking at the long term picture.

Arsenal crocks to be given new contracts – and injury update

There has been good and bad Arsenal injury news in the aftermath of our disappointing draw with Tottenham. The bad news is that both Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta are both going to out for up to a month, although even that estimate could probably be taken with a pinch of salt considering past forecasts.

The good news is that Jack Wilshere has suffered no damage to his ankle after looking to be in terrible pain himself during the Spurs game, and it is even possible that he could be fit to face Galatasary tomorrow evening. This could be a godsend as Arteta and Ramsey will be going to the treatment room to join Giroud, Walcott, Gnabry, Debuchy, Monreal and Yaya Sanogo. It looks like the Gunners medical team are going to be extremely busy for the forseeable future…

Why Ramsey and Arteta injuries are NOT a disaster for Arsenal

First of all Arsenal fans, I cannot believe our luck on the injury front. And just like last season, they all seem to come in the same areas at the same time. First it was the defence, losing Kieran Gibbs, Nacho Monreal and Mathieu Debuchy within the first few games and now it is the midfield Arsenal players dropping like flies.

But in the cold light of day, I don’t think the loss of Mikel Arteta for a couple of weeks and Aaron Ramsey for a month, according to physioroom.com, is necessarily as bad as it first looks.

Injuries have already finished Arsenal’s chances of ANY trophy

If Arsenal had won the North London Derby, the fans may have been able to take another couple of injuries to add to our ever expanding list (that we have every single year) but to have to lose two points AND two important players is just too much to bear right now.

It’s not even that the injuries were caused by aggressive Tottenham challenges, but simply by playing their normal game which could have happened against any team we were playing. The fact is that Wenger is certain that both Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey will not be available for next weeks game against the League leaders Chelsea.

Walcott delay shows Arsenal have NOT solved injury problems?

It seems a long time ago now that we started to hear about the Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott getting back into training. There were little videos released of him in the gym doing leg squats as long ago as June and then we kept getting very positive sounding reports on his road to recovery, from the club and from the player himself.

So was I the only one who did a double take on hearing Arsene Wenger’s recent injury update in a report by Arsenal.com? As he gave the squad news before the Southampton game, the manager calmly informed us that Theo and Serge Gnabry were due back in full training after the upcoming international break.

It’s about time Arsenal had some good news!

Finally Some Positive Injury News For Arsenal! by AT

After a rather dismal performance in the Capital One Cup against Southampton, the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has given the latest injury news from his squad. While Arsenal had to field a second-string side against the Saints as a result of all the injuries, Gooners will be happy to know that there is plenty of positive news from the treatment room.

Firstly, Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry are both set to be back right after the international break, which starts after the game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Wenger said: Theo is doing very well, and Gnabry is doing very well too. They should be available after the international break for full training.”

Is Bellerin REALLY ready to step up for Arsenal?

Bellerin Ready for the Next Step at Arsenal! by AT

Arsenal’s inability to adequately bolster the defence in the summer has quite evidently cost them very early on in the new campaign. News has broken out today confirming that Mathieu Debuchy will be on the sidelines for the next three months, leaving Arsene Wenger’s side with no recognized right-backs.

While Calum Chambers is very much capable of putting in a shift at right-back, the young Englishman cannot be tied down to that spot as he’ll have to his duties at central defence as well, Mertesacker and Koscielny cannot be expected to start every game, there are bound to be injuries.

BANG! Arsenal’s worst fears come true with Debuchy injury!

The injury curse that seems to have been hanging over the Emirates stadium and the Arsenal team in recent years goes on. After already losing our main striker Olivier Giroud to a bizarre tibia injury for three months, we now face about the same amount of time without our first choice right back.

Arsene Wenger has revealed in an Arsenal.com report that Mathieu Debuchy has already had surgery on his problem ankle that will mean the Gunners will not be able to call on the France international until around the turn of the year.

Where does Wilshere ankle injury leave Arsenal?

The next two days could turn out to be the most important of the season for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger. A humbling and humiliating Champions League defeat by Borussia Dortmund on the back of a stuttering start to the Premier League season has left us teetering on the brink of disaster.

Morale and self belief among the players must be pretty low and Wenger also has a mounting injury crisis to deal with ahead of a must win away game with high flying Aston Villa, who beat Liverpool at Anfield last weekend, so now is when the manager needs to really earn his money.

Wenger says Arsenal could have Debuchy back SOON

Obviously it will not be any use to Arsenal tonight in the Champions League away to Borussia Dortmund, or the Premier League game at Aston Villa this weekend, but Arsene Wenger is optimistic that the injury to our French right back may not be nearly as bad as first feared.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference, as reported by ESPN, the Arsenal boss revealed that the 29-year old France international is due to have a scan today on his sprained ankle, but the club is hopeful for a good result. He also played down the so-called defensive crisis that has ruled out Nacho Monreal and made young Calum Chambers a doubt as well.
