You do not need me to tell you that Arsenal have had some big injury problems to deal with already this season, surprise surprise. But at least thoise problems have not extended to our Germany international star Mesut Ozil, or not yet at least. So the creative genius has been able to start all six Champions League games and 18 of our 19 Premier League games.
But it is vital for our title hopes that this continues, so I for one am very worried about the latest injury news on our England international star Jack Wilshere reported by Sky Sports. Not only has the unlucky Gunner had his return from the treatment room put back once again, but Arsene Wenger admitted that he really has no firm idea of when Jack will be back.
Even though Wilshere has been given a new deeper lying role by Roy Hodgson, his club manager is not convinced and still see the 23-year old’s best position as further forward. IN fact he is now arguably our best replacement for Ozil, when fit of course.
There is Rosicky, of course, and Santi Cazorla but they are both injured as well, so if Wenger wants to avoid the same thing happening to the German as happened to our other superstar Alexis Sanchez because there was no one to cover for him, he had better be ready to spend some serious money in the January transfer window.
But will the penny pinching prof feel the same way?
