Did you hear the cheers from the Arsenal fans yesterday when Tomas Rosicky made his first appearance of the season against Burnley yesterday? It was great to see Little Mozart back where he belongs, but yet again he has been hit by Arsenal’s injury curse and suffered another thigh injury during the game and will be back on the treatment for another month at least…
Despite the fact that the Arsenal injury list is now down to just two players in Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere, the boss explained that some of the players that are back in training and available to play again are not quite fully ready as yet.
There will still be plenty of Arsenal transfer rumours in the football media over the next few days but unless Arsene Wenger has a massive change of heart or he was telling fibs in his press conference today, the only new players we can expect to see at Arsenal are the two young Nigerian prospects.
I am sensing quite a bit of nerves and pessimism around Arsenal fans at the moment. After just two points from the last three Premier League games and with an FA cup 4th round to play just days before the next EPL game against a Southampton side with no game this weekend and that inflicted our biggest defeat of the season so far, it is hardly surprising that we are all a bit concerned about messing up the title race.
Although Arsenal had little chance of beating Chelsea after the first 23 minutes when we were a goal down plus a man down, the team did try hard to break through and get an equalizer. But the deficencies in midfield were clear for all to see.
