Latest Arsenal injury news makes for some depressing reading.
Up until recently, it seemed that the Arsenal injury curse had been put to bed but no, it is back with a vengeance.
This latest update comes courtesy of the official Arsenal website.
Unavailable for the game against Standard Liege on Thursday and will be assessed ahead of Sunday’s crucial Premier League clash with Manchester City.
Almost in the same boat as Bellerin. Pepe will also miss the Standard Liege game and be assessed before the big game on Sunday when Manchester City visit the Emirates.
This one is not good news, initially, the prognosis was that he would be undergoing further assessment and investigations but it seems he is now out for up to three months.
The former captain has a concussion and because of the protocols surrounding concussion, he will miss both the Standard Liege match and the league game with Man City.
On the long term injured list but is expecting to start participating in training sometime in December.
We will not be seeing the central defender for at least a couple of more weeks and then it will be just for training.
That makes for some sorry reading, especially the news on Nicholas Pepe and Kieran Tierney. Even the Granit Xhaka news is disappointing. It just got a whole lot harder for the Man City game.
