Arsenal sweat as England to risk Gunners on plastic pitch

THe international break has so far been quite good to Arsenal, with the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud all scoring, Mesut Ozil shining for Germany and nothing bad happening to any of the Gunners as yet.

The injury news has been good so far, not only with the Arsenal players getting through the games without picking up any knocks, but with out Premier League rivals Man City and United losing key players and with our next Champions League opponents Bayern Munich losing Mario Gotze to injury.

But the break is not over yet and Arsene Wenger has a worrying 90 minutes ahead of him tonight, as The Mirror is reporting that Roy Hodgson is set to start two Arsenal stars for England tonight. The problem is that the three lions are away to Lithuania and the game is going to be played on an artificial pitch that makes an injury more likely to occur.

With England already having won the group, Hodgson is planning to not risk some of his key players and so our left back Kieran Gibbs and our midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are due to come in. THe good news is that Theo Walcott is not going to be risked, but an injury to either of the other two Gunners could be bad news for us and our hopes of the Premier League title.

  1. That’s all we need. I HATE plastic pitches.

    Both OX and Gibbs (all our players ) are important. OX is an excellent winger even though Wenger prefers Ramsey on the right. Gibbs is important because we don’t have a third LB

    Injury to either will be a disaster

    Lets hope EVERYONE returns safe and healthy

      1. Yes exactly. We need all our players to be fit
        We are already without Wilshere, Rosicky and Welbeck.. And lesser injuries to Koscielny, Arteta and Flamini

        Hopefully, the last three will play soon and hopefully the first three will be back by January

  2. BTW

    My short term goal for our club is to be TOP of leader board on the 25 th

    If we beat both Watford and Everton, we will do it barring City beating both Bournemouth and United.

    It would do wonders for our belief and performance to be #1

    So lets focus on Watford first

  3. Can’t wait for the watford game. How I miss seeing Arsenal play… So far so good, hopefully’ the boys will be back fit and firing in all cylinders…

  4. @Robbertthegooner,bythe way, who told you City will beat Bournemouth? I think Man City will drop some points at home to B’mouth on Saturday. What I can’t say is, I don’t know if it will be all the 3 points or 2 they will drop. Arsenal will either go top on the table or share joint top with Man City after the proceedings of all the Saturday BPL have ended. That’s why I’ve been crying foul in the wilderness of the internet alone, demanding the England manager, Roy Hudgson should give us our 3 Gunners back. We don’t want to see him run them down to get more glory before handing them over to us. Our away game to Watford’s Ighalo led attack, is central to our title challenge. And I am more than sure Arsenal will not miss collecting all the 3 points at stake from Watford.
