You never really know what will happen in football, of course, but just like with the decisions of officials there is a theory that all sorts of things that are seen as good or bad luck tend to even themselves up over the course of a season.
Arsenal fans can only hope that this is true on the injury front. Not only could we do without a long list of Gunners having to sit out games every week, it would be a big help if our title rivals had to cope with the same sort of problems that have affected Arsenal over the first half of the season.
I am talking mainly about Chelsea, who have also seemingly been helped by having no European games to concern them. Just this week we can see on the sports injury website Squawka.com that Arsenal have eight players on the injury list while the current league leaders have just one and that is John Terry who has not been playing when he is fit.
The good news for Arsenal is that all of those eight players except Santi Cazorla are due back in January and most of them in the next few days. The Spaniard is set for a return in February and if we are not hit by more bad luck and Chelsea’s takes a turn for the worst I think it would make the race for the title very interesting indeed.
Do you think a change in fortunes would see a change to our chances of becoming EPL champions?
