Even though Arsenal have been managing to cope, to some extent or the other, with the lengthy injury list, we all know that it really is not helping us and we have seen plenty of times in the past just how damaging it can be to the success of Arsenal.
As our special injury page on Just Arsenal shows, Arsene Wenger is currently having to do without seven first team players in Wilshere, Welbeck, Sanchez, Rosicky, Cazorla, Coquelin and Arteta and that is only because our French midfielder Mathieu Flamini is set to be fit again for the Newcastle game on Saturday.
Flamini’s return is not the only good news though, as Wenger’s injury update on Arsenal.com shows. The best news is that Alexis Sanchez is going to be the first player back and although the Chilean is only a possible for Sunderland in the FA cup he is certain to be ready for Liverpool in the Premier League. Brilliant news I am sure you will agree and a massive boost to our title hopes.
There was more good news on Jack Wilshere as the boss reckons he will be back before the end of February. Before that, however, the prof might even be able to give Ozil a rest as Rosicky is three weeks away. We could also see Arteta again soon as the club captain is already back in training.
But will this boost stop the boss giving us another boost in the transfer market?
