There is nothing but bad news and bad luck for Arsenal and their fans at the moment. The injuries are piling up, and now that Francis Coquelin and Mikel Arteta have joined the ranks of the walking wounded we really are down to the bare bones of the squad.
With Arsenal having an injury list as long as it has ever been, we were all jumping for joy that they would get an extra couple of weeks to recover while the internationals were on, but I’m not so sure it is all going to be good, and nor is Arsene Wenger.
Here we have another AudioPost from Arsene Wenger’s Swansea v Arsenal pre-match conference yesterday, where he discusses the injury situation and how quickly some players will be returning to the squad.
He also talks about how the international games do not help the situation, and gives us hints into who will be playing on the right-wing against Swansea today.

There will be a million Arsenal fans shouting “I told you so” this week, as the double injury blow to Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has left the Gunners in a precarious position for their next few games. Not only have we lost those two as possible right-wingers following the injury to Aaron Ramsey, it has also left us with only ONE recognised centre-forward in Olivier Giroud until either Walcott or Danny Welbeck return to full fitness.
