The latest injury news from Arsene Wenger is that the only player that he has available once more from the injury list is the Spanish right back Hector Bellerin, which is a handy boost as the Gunners head to the west midlands to take on Tony Pulis’ West Bromwich Albion.
Arsene Wenger must have been beside himself after hearing that the Arsenal and Chile international forward Alexis Sanchez had played the full 90 minutes of a bad tempered World Cup qualifier against Uruguay, despite his national coach Jorge Sampaoli revealing before the game in Montevideo that Alexis had picked up a knock to his calf and was therefore an injury risk.
This is perhaps another indication that the current Arsenal team are the best we have seen in years and look like having the best chance of winning the Premier League since Robert Pires and his team mates acheived what many said could not be done and managed to the whole season without a league defeat.
Injuries really hit us, but Arsenal couldn’t afford to lose this one by KM
Hello guys. The international break is finally here and we desperately needed it. We put out a squad featuring players you’d hardly see if it wasn’t for so many injuries and I thought that we were both physically and mentally tired.
Considering that Arsenal had a daunting collection of players on the treatment table, and we started the game against Tottenham with an Alexis running on empty, a Cazorla that couldn’t see straight and a Koscielny that wasn’t 100% fit, the fact we ground out a draw against our bitter enemies begins to look impressive.
