Can Arsenal hold on until fantastic injury news kicks in?

It looks like the very unlucky Arsenal and Czech Republic midfield star Tomas Rosicky could soon be on his own in the Arsenal treatment room, as the latest injury update from Arsene Wenger on the Arsenal website has revealed that out two other talented midfielders on the injury list have stepped up their recovery plans and are due back in action in a matter of weeks.

So the Spanish international star Santi Cazorla and the England international Jack Wilshere are now on the last leg of the comeback trail, although it will still take a few weeks for the pair to build up their fitness and be ready to feature in the first team once more.

Before that happens, though, Arsenal fans will be able to welcome back Jack’s international team mate Danny Welbeck, with the Arsenal boss suggesting that the England striker could be in line to make his first appearance of the season when the Gunners take in Hull City in the 5th round of the FA cup next weekend.

The Frenchman said, “It is a similar squad available to last week, we are still early in the week but we should have everyone available. Of course Rosicky [is out], and Wilshere is not ready. But everyone else should be available

“[Welbeck] is doing well, it is a bit early for him maybe but he is now back to full power in training. It is a big possibility [he could be involved against Hull next week]. We gave him one or two days recovery after the under-21 game, but now he is back in full training. He has worked very hard and he is fit.

“[Wilshere and Cazorla] are back running, they are on a fitness programme now so it means it is not a question of months anymore, it is a question of weeks for them to be back.”

The problem now is that if Arsenal do not perform well and get the right results over the next few weeks, the return of these three Gunners could be just a bit too late to help us push for the Premier League title win. So can the squad of fit Arsenal players keep us in the race until their team mates finally return from injury?

  1. That’s Good news and if you can tell me that Flamini won’t be starting against Leicester…
    I would be over the moon ?

    Wenger’s comment, about it being the same team as last week. …. worries me ?… Surely Coquelin has to start instead of Flamini?

    1. The Only missing part of our best XI is cazorla.
      Coz for me its:
      Le coq_ santi

      1. Remove Walcott and put Ramsey and we have the strongest midfield in the country. Without Cazorla there’s no quick passing football and without Ramsey there’s no defensive and attacking stability.

  2. It won’t matter if we keep playing flamini/ramsay. We need to get Elneny/coq in there until cazorla comes back and drop flamini/ramsay to the bench; One is on his last legs and the other should be a banch warmer.

    1. @ Dennis. I heard Ramsey the of match for Bournemouth game. How can you bench such a player. Though he’s been sloppy in last few weeks, but he improved the last game. I his fitness will continue to improve with game after game.

    2. i wouldn’t drop ramsey for elneny but i would for cazorla. ramsey is unpredictable, some games hes excellent like bournemouth and other games hes useless like southampton at home.

  3. Not sure where Wellbeck
    and Wilshere fit in because
    like Rosicky and Arteta
    they are hardly missed.
    But I guess one assist or one goal could turn
    the title but I am not counting on these two.
    Cazorla is the one I miss and where is Coquelin?
    Kinda concerned about his fitness but then
    I thought Elneny was bought to cover Coq?
    If Arsenal can survive till the International break
    26th March we will win the title I am sure.
    Swansea (H) and WBA (H)= wins.
    So to me it comes down to four games
    Leicester (H) must win. If we lose we go behind
    by 8 points so this is an absolute can’t lose game.
    Man U (A) Spurs (A) Everton (A) are the test.
    5 points from these 3 games would be enough.
    Barca and the FA Cup do not worry me as it’s the EPL I want.
    3 points v Leicester and the title comes into view.

  4. Vardy suggests an open game and he has his reasons for saying that but, if Wenger`s selections are right, an open game will suit Arsenal. I`m going for a draw. I think Leicester will play defensive
    and rely on the counter aiming for one point and hoping for three. Arsenal`s experience against Leicester`s flare. 1-1 for me.

  5. Amen to that cheeterspotter,

    The Arsenal has to win this game or at worst Leicester lose! Must believe they can do this,none of that sissy type of mentality that seems to creep into the team sometimes,and deflect the pressure back onto Leicester City. Fast forward Sunday afternoon COYG.!
    Straight’n Up And Fly Right!
