I was just thinking about Arsene Wenger as he prepares Arsenal for the next game, which is at home to West Brom in the Premier League, because it is the first of three games in the space of six days and although we know the boss is going to make the EPL games a priority over the domestic cup competitions and the Europa League, he may have been thinking about making some changes.
But with our injury problems mounting that is not so easy and it appears that our annual troubles with injuries are already starting to bite. It feels like the new season has hardly started yet already the Gunners are beset with problems, so is this issue already a big concern for Arsenal?
Arsene Wenger had to start the season, yet again, with a makeshift defence because of fitness and injury issues, while there was still no firm idea when we might see the Spanish midfield star Santi Cazorla back in action. We have recently lost Mesut Ozil and Francis Coquelin for a few weeks and now Danny Welbeck and Calum Chambers are out until after the international break, while there is also a doubt over Theo Walcott.
Every year is the same and with Wenger having only signed two new players in the transfer window but sold a lot more, will injuries conspire to ruin another season for Arsenal?
