There is more evidence today that Arsenal may have finally got to the root of the problem that has seen Arsene Wenger have to cope with a crippling injury list for most of the current season and the whole of our last campaign. It has been a problem which many believe has cost the Gunners a good chance of the Premier League title this year, but especially last time around when we were flying high up until the halfway point before losing the likes of Ramsey, Walcott and Ozil.
Arsene Wenger spoke about it towards the end of last season and then brought a couple of fitness and medical experts in during the summer. So the news reported by The Mirror today that Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Debuchy are back in training this week, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has a good chance of being available for the Liverpool game next weekend is very welcome to Arsenal fans.
It leaves just the unlucky Abou Diaby in the treatment room and suggests that the club could be able to stay relatively injury free from now on, although with the international games about to start I am not counting any chickens.
We don´t know how long it will take for Debuchy, Arteta and Wilshere to be fit enough to play as they have all been out for a long time but they could still have an important part to play before the summer break. It is great news for them and for Arsenal and we can only hope that Wenger will have a fuller squad to choose from next season. Will that prove to be the difference between a top four spot and the very top?
