Arsenal injury curse hits two international stars – What a shock!

There are plenty of international games still to be played and this Arsenal fan will not be able to relax until the last ball has been kicked by our international players, most likely by Alexis Sanchez or David Ospina whose nations both play World Cup qualifiers in the early hours of Wednesday morning in South America.

Well Arsenal fans will be hoping that our Colombian keeper is alright to play in that game but it is by no means certain. Not only did Ospina pick up a knock in the win over Colombia this week, a Metro report shows that it was an aggravation of the problem that he had in our last Premier League game at Everton.

The keeper does seem to be a tough cookie though, and just like against Everton he shook it off to finish the match but he may well struggle to start their next game.

The other Arsenal player to suffer an injury is our England forward Theo Walcott. In another Metro report the national boss Roy Hodgson explained that the Arsenal striker has a dead leg from training and that will almost certainly rule him out of England’s clash with Germany today, a match where his pace on the counter attack was probably his best chance of an appearance.

  1. Injuries are part of the game.
    Arsenal football club tends to suffer more from injuries to players.
    We need to.. We must find a way to cope with these injuries.

    1. Hahaha ? ? ?
      Don’t worry about it, so is the rest if him….
      His been a ghost for a while now!

      Walcott always seems to pick up most of his injuries on international duties.

    2. Hahaha ? ? ?
      Don’t worry about it, so is the rest of him….
      His been a ghost for a while now!

      Walcott always seems to pick up most of his injuries on international duties.

    3. Hahaha……not dead per say bro

      A dead leg or charley horse is a bruise or contusion caused by a sharp impact with a muscle which is usually crushed against the
      thigh bone resulting in numbness, swelling and sometimes bruising of the thigh muscles.

  2. Forgive me for being late for the Walcott article but I’m not a fan of his. No disrespect to the dude but he really needs to go and that faith that he got needs to be put into Welbeck. I know he won’t go but at his age after 10 years and his contribution has left me deeply unimpressed. Been reading a lot of articles about Lukaku and how much he wants Champions League football next season. The guy is Premier League proven, has been improving and about to turn 23. Why not make him the ST target for this summer? It just so happens that we have a #9 jersey available.

    1. Wenger willl keep Walcott. And we’ll standby and watch Lukaku go to Manchester.

      You know this is what’s going to happen.

  3. Will Arsenal miss Walcott for the Watford and the West Ham games if he becomes unavailable for these 2 important games due his injury?

    Well, I wouldn’t know what the Boss will say over that as Walcott has suddenly turned to a passenger for Arsenal on the field of play instead of to be among the drivers in the driving seat for Arsenal on the field of play.

    I think Ospina injury is not that serious as he was reported to have shake off the knock he picked in the Bolivia game and played on to the end of the match. And Cech is reported to be expected back from his injury and he could be available for selection for the Watford game. But how much chance he will have to start in that game should Ospina becomes unavailable can only be answered by the Boss. But Macey may get a chance to prove his worth if our 2 top Keepers are not fully fit to play-in or start the Watford game. It could be a case of 1 man’s poison is another man’s food.

    I hope manager Roy Hudgson will soft pedal on playing Welbeck in his 2 friendly games as Arsenal cannot afford any injury happening to their inform striker Walcott at this crucial title run-in stage in the season.
