There has been and will continue to be an awful lot of talk among Arsenal fans and in the football press about various behind the scenes goings on at our club, but right now the manager and the players need to focus on the next match and taking all three Premier League points from our home game against Manchester City.
Once again, though, and as usual, the manager’s team selection and our chances of winning are going to be hampered by the Arsenal injury list. We are definitely going to be without three big players in Cazorla, Lucas Perez and Petr Cech and there are doubts over the fitness of a few more.
This is nothing new, unfortunately, and a report in The Mirror has confirmed that the Gunners have by far the worst record in the Premier League. Out of the 11 teams who have been constantly in the EPL since 2011 we are way out in front with 10,285 player days missed due to injury or illness.
That is about two years more than second in the list Man United and way more than double the bottom club on the table Chelsea. There may be other problems at our club but you cannot ignore the fact that this is not helping us one little bit.
Sort that out and I firmly believe that everything else will start to slot into place.
