Will this DOUBLE injury blow kill off Arsenal’s season?

Winning the Europa League is not the only thing left for Arsenal to do this season, as we also9 have the small matter of seven Premier League games left to play. With Burnley and Leicester City hot on our heels the Gunners cannot afford to slack off too much as we may well still need that sixth place to get us into Europe.

There is no doubt that the remainnder of this season’s European games are the more important for Arsenal, so the last thing we need is to be losing two of the possible starting XI for the first leg of our quarter-final with CSKA Moscow. That could be the case, though, according to a Metro report.

What is worse is that the two players in doubt are pretty much our only real striker options in Alexandre Lacazette and Danny Welbeck. The fitness of the Frenchman is a concern as he is only just back from a lengthy spell on the sidelines, while the man he replaced in the 3-0 win over Stoke, Arsene Wenger says, has a bit of a problem with his back.

Arsenal could really do with making full use of home advantage before the return trip to Russia and that means goals. So if our two main forwards are not fit, could Artsenal’s already sickly season be about to be killed off completely?

    Second funny article I have read in the last 24 hours. We are already qualified for Europa league next season as we were in the final of the league cup and Man City have qualified for the champions league. Heck we could finish 17th and it wouldn’t make a difference to next season.

    Also I very much doubt that both strikers will be out. At least one will be given an injection due to the importance of Thursday night!

      in terms of us already being qualified for Europe is this true?????? I’m surprised there wasn’t more of an emphasis from the rest of the PL on the Carabao Cup if this is in fact true

    2. GunnerSince2004 says:

      Actually, if the teams that wins the FA Cup & Carrabao Cup finals have already qualified for UCL, the next teams on the EPL log (i.e 6th & 7th) will get the UEL spots. The same applies if the team that wins the FA Cup or Carrabao Cup finishes 5th on the EPL log. So unless Chelsea fail to make the top 5 but wins the FA Cup or Southampton win the FA Cup, we are still guaranteed of a UEL spot even if we finish 7th in the EPL.

  2. Innit says:

    Don’t worry. We got Iwobi lol .???

    Like Jaydog mentioned, one of them will play. I doubt both are out too
    Its just the Metro
    Hopefully its Lacazette that starts
    But i hope both will be healthy

    We Will need a HUGE Team effort on Thursday. Mesut, Mkhi, Jack, Aaron, Xhaka etc will need to step ? and play their hearts out.
    This will be NO easy match.

  3. Sony says:

    I remember Ozil and Sanchez as striker for some games when we subbed Giroud. And i still think Ramsey would be good in that position. So they could do the job.

  4. Break-on-through says:

    Maybe Mkhit as an option if it comes to it, he can hold the ball up well and he makes good movement and has a decent shot on him. With time he’d probably be good at it, like those alternate options at Tott and Lei. I’d like to say Messi but who are we kidding. There’s Nketiah too I suppose, he might surprise.

  5. Samuel Akinsola Adebosin says:

    Arsenal 4-1-4-1 vs CSKA Moscow.

    Macey Holding Maitland Kolasinac ElNeny Iwobi Nketiah.

    1. Mwsupporter says:

      Kos will play.

  6. I don’t think both players will be out. we may end up having both players fit

  7. Chiza says:

    get Julian Nagelsmann,he is the solution to our coaching problems.the next better guardiola!!!!!

  8. Adega Olatunji says:

    Sometimes when I hear the names of our players even the one you said they are good, I just get angry. Seeing spurs beating Chelsea on Sunday, look at the way Madrid dismantled almighty Juventus yesterday, you ask your self what has brought Arsenal to this low level that we are now celebrating Welbeck, Ramsey, Wilshire, Xhaka and co. None of this our stars will make first eleven at Tottenham, Chelsea, they will not even make the bench at the teams like Barter Munich, Barcelona and real Madrid. So disgusting

  9. Franklin says:

    Laca is fit an hungry for goals. We have no problems there

  10. Prof says:

    I wonder why almost everyone still doubt the quality of Eddie Nkettiah. Underrating is now becoming one unnoticed weapon agaist this lad’s progression towards arsenal senior team. AS AT PRESENT Nkettiah is more than worthy to be ahead of welbeck as our third choice striker after auba and lacazette.
