BIG injury boost for Arsenal leaves Diaby alone on sidelines!!

There is more evidence today that Arsenal may have finally got to the root of the problem that has seen Arsene Wenger have to cope with a crippling injury list for most of the current season and the whole of our last campaign. It has been a problem which many believe has cost the Gunners a good chance of the Premier League title this year, but especially last time around when we were flying high up until the halfway point before losing the likes of Ramsey, Walcott and Ozil.

Arsenal v Monaco review – Stunned Gunners killed by caution

It was important for Arsenal to get a good start and put early pressure on Monaco tonight and we did that for about FIVE MEASLY MINUTES, and it was all downhill from there. After using our pace and the wide areas well and getting the French team in a bit of a spin, the visitors soon started to settle down and get into the game and the Gunners just let them.

BIG injury boost but do Arsenal need to SAVE some stars?

This will not be the first time or the last time that Arsenal face two big games in quick succession of course, and the fact that our north London derby clash with Tottenham has been scheduled for the early kick-off on Saturday will help, but Arsene Wenger must still consider the fatigue of his players, with a Premier League game against Leicester City coming up on Tuesday night.

Should Arsenal start Walcott against Southampton

I am going on the assumption that the Arsenal injury update given on Danny Welbeck was not some crafty ploy by Arsene Wenger and that the England international striker really has got a thigh problem that will keep him out of the away game against Southampton tomorrow.

Which of these 3 Arsenal midfielders will start v Southampton?

With the Arsenal away game against an in form and high flying Southampton being the third game for the Gunners in a week, Arsene Wenger will obviously have some concerns over the fitness of some of his Arsenal players. But it is a vital game as well so the manager has a bit of a balancing act to perform.

Arsenal team news! Welbeck OUT and Walcott IN?

That daft red card that the Arsenal and France international striker picked up for losing his rag and throwing a headbutt in the QPR game is starting to look more and more costly to the Gunners. We did manage a plucky away win at West Ham in the first of the centre forward’s three games of suspension, but Wenger had to shuffle his squad and use players that could have done with a rest. And we may have killed the Hammers off earlier with the Frenchman leading the line.

How will Arsenal cope with Ramsey injury setback?

When the Arsenal and Wales international Aaron Ramsey picked up his latest injury problem, a hamstring strain, about three weeks ago, it was originally not thought to be too bad. It was terrible news for the Gunners of course, especially as Rambo had found his shooting boots in spectacular style with that amazing goal away to Galatasaray. But the injury was supposed to be a minor one and there was a good chance of him recovering in time for the festive period.

Did Arsenal miss a trick? Why no Walcott?

I suppose that it did not matter in the end, as Arsenal were able to soak up the pressure from West Ham and record a vital away win that keeps the little run of results going and moves the Gunners above the Hammers in the Premier League table.
