How injuries HELPED Arsenal this season

Injuries…yes please! By ThirdManJW

As we reach the end of the season, and take a moment of reflection…what has been the main positive?. Has it been the instant impact of Sanchez, the rebirth of Ozil, big game mentality?

Green Light and Price Cut to secure Carvalho’s Arsenal transfer?

He was one of the many central midfielders linked with a potential move to join Arsenal last summer, when we were all crying out for a player to finally come in and replace the great Patrick Vieira. Others like Lars Bender, Morgan Schneiderlin and Sami Khedira were linked but were not really available, while Carvalho was priced way too high.

Coquelin set to star for Arsenal against Chelsea

In recent weeks Francis Coquelin nullified the threat of Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling. He then stopped Angel Di Maria and Ander Herrera. The Arsenal midfielder now faces his biggest challenge of the season so far as Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas prepare to visit the Emirate’s on Sunday.

With Arsenal now sitting in second place in the Premier League table and heading for a second successive Wembley FA cup final and on an amazing run of form, with 21 wins and one draw from our last 25 games, the calls from some Arsenal fans and members of the football media have pretty much gone away.

It has been said for many years that Arsenal need to buy a “beast” of a DM, and even though Francis Coquelin has since emerged from the wilderness, the Gunners still need an effective backup now that Arteta and Flamini are getting on in years.

Arsenal v Reading player ratings (FA cup) – Ozil MOTM

I know that the TV pundits gave it to Alexis Sanchez, and not many Arsenal fans will disagree after the Chilean international scored both goals for the Gunners in our narrow and hard fought win over Reading.

Will Mikel Arteta REALLY get a new Arsenal contract?

The Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta has only made 11 appearances for the club so far this season, and with only a few games remaining until the end of the season, he is still a week or two away from being ready to play. The Spanish midfielder turned 33 years of age last month, and with just a couple of months left on his contract is aiming to reach full fitness before discussing a new contract with Arsene Wenger.
